The lake is truly worth the visit. If you are hot and want to go for a swim, If you want to take a great boat ride, or just walk along the lake. The water temperature in the summer is about 60 to 65 degrees. It is totally worth it.

I'm not sure how you can miss this, if you are visiting Zurich, but it's definitely worth to stroll along the banks on a nice weather day. Also nice to bike around, if you have time for that.

We found our about the short river cruise on ZVV as we purchased the Zurich Card which included the fare for the river cruise. It was a slow ride down the Limmat River and into Lake Zurich, great scenery and seeing the historical area of Zurich along the river. Worth a ride, get off wherever you feel like seeing something...

Our boat cruise on the harbour was very pleasant and gave us another aspect of beautiful Zurich. The waterfront housing was great to see.

This was just beautiful. We had lunch outside on the deck, it was of high quality. The staff were lovely, helpful and very attentive. The cost was very reasonable. Very enjoyable

Tour the lake with boat or a car; Nice landscapes, but the lake sides around Zurich are over-crowded with houses and modern buildings...

There are better lakes in Switzerland. Nobody in Switzerland goes to Zurich for the lake. It is a lake which is good for the rich house owners around the lake who want to have a nice view and for boat owners. Why not going to the Vierwaldstädtersee or other Swiss lakes.
