The lake is what absolutely defines and "makes" Zurich. It is like a presence that creates the soul of the city. Walking along its banks, boating on it, and enjoying the public areas that line it are very special and unique.

Beautiful area. The park appeared to be very popular in the summer. We enjoyed eating a delicious brat lakeside on a summer evening and watching the street performers.

This is one of the best places in Zurich. The lake is huge, clean and beautiful. For 1.5 hours and 8 CHF for an adult you have the best trip around the lake. It is very relaxing and beautiful. If you alsp have some time in Zurich to spare you can just walk or sit around the lake. Perfect way... More

The lake offers you wonderful views of the city and area. Take time to go all the way to the end, and stop off in Rapperswil on the way back. Very special atmosphere. Ticket prices are very fair.

Lake Zurich is great for boat trips, but also for walking around the beautiful areas of its shoreline. During warm summer days, there are also areas where people sunbathe and have fun in the water. The lawn in front of China Garden is great for outdoor activities such as playing badminton. From Bellevue, during clear-sky days, you can see the... More

Grab a beer or two and watch the world go by on its shores. People just seem so relaxed around it. There are a ton of food places to dine at also.

We caught the regular ferry down the lake to Rapperswil - it takes 2 hours & you get to see lots. Rapperswil is a quaint village, but won't hold you for long. You can order quite nice food & wine on board. You can take the ferry back for a further 2 hours, or use your return ticket to catch... More

Well if you want a relaxing few hours with good food and outlook then a trip on the lake is the thing for you. There are many trip variations for example Zurich town to Rapperswil. That takes a few hours and gives you time to take in the scenery and enjoy a drink. Another trip is the one from Rappi... More
