No matter the time of year Lake Zurich is a beautiful place to visit. We love to stop by in winter and purchase some heisse maroni from the street stalls (roasted chesnuts) and just wander around but in summer it takes on a very different feel. A busy bustling area that just teems with people. Boat rides across the lake... More

The lake was very quiet. Beautiful, calm and very large but very quiet- not even fishermen. The view from a cable car is not to be missued.

A very large lake, that some locals would even describe as a "sea" with many attractions surrounding it. In summer and sometimes fall, there are boat races held there so boating fans can enjoy too. Ferries to take you across the lake are available every half hourly. For food lovers, there are many options around, reasonably priced, so if you... More

I would highly recommend taking a tour of the lake. Nice and calm and very nice scenery! If I am not mistaken it was about ten euro a person for the boat ride, no food or booze, Ability to sit covered or ride outside if you'd like. In the city, the wildlife eat out of your hand.

There are lots of shopping places and restaurants near the lake side. This is very good place to roam around, stay idle and enjoy the nature. It's a nice place to visit.

We went for a boat trip on Lake Zurich on January 12th. We took the 4 hour cruise to Rapperswil and back. Whilst there was no time to get off at Rapperswil, which we would have loved to do as it looked fascinating, the whole experience was lovely and the views were beautiful. We went first class and indulged in... More

We were lucky, sitting on the river band and drinking hot chocolate we had view on the majestic and snow covered mountains.

The cruise on the lake via the ferry was pleasant but not remarkable. It would have helped if passengers / tourists were given some information on the beautiful views and the various ferry stops. A short ride both ways just over 1/2 hour.

We took the short round trip using the Zurich Card. It was a nice experience and the view was lovely.
