Like many water areas in the mini-country of Switzerland, this lake is often beautified by relatively austere civilized structures. Like Switzerland in general, the lake is regulated, ordered, and lovely. However, don't imagine visiting a Swiss lake such as this one at Zurich with the idea of pending a day at the beach or water-skiing or jet boating. Not that... More

Lake Zurich let you spend a nice time layed on the grass or even swimming. Don't miss the boat trip navigating the lake. Awesome experience in summer. Relax, prepare your eyes to see the beauty of the landscape and enjoy your time...

Well worth a visit and on a very hot day visit the Mythenquai along the lake. A fantastic day out with lots of areas to sunbathe and it has a diving board area in the lake.

We took the 4-hour tour down to Rapperswil and back and thoroughly enjoyed the 'cruise'. The boat was well-equipped and there were plenty of vantage points to watch the scenery go by. The lake’s surroundings are not really quite as stunning as others in Austria, Germany and the rest of Switzerland - and it is quite built up along the... More

I loved the lake! It was such a cultural center where you could go and relax. A must do on an visit. Take a walk along the water, especially at sunset. Romance is always in the air! The swans, the people, the serenity, the Alp backdrop!

Its one of the most beautiful lakes I have seen, its surroundings and posh residential areas both sides of it are heaven-like. One must take a ferry ride to see ts beauty. It is very clean and refreshing.

Lake Zurich is a must see when visiting. I think it is the top thing to see other than the museums and shopping of course. They do have a water taxi that can take you out on the lake. The surrounding areas on the lake are spectacular too.

Walking along the river to the the lake is great experience, especially just before sunset. The water is very clean and clear that swans are cruising up and down. Very nice indeed.

We rented free bikes out and took a ride around the lake and it was a lovely way to spend the afternoon.
