Lake Zurich

Start with a walk from Limmatquai and take a free ride with the boat once you buy a day pass. A journey to remember.

I lived in this city for nearly fifteen days on work. Bahnof Strasse was the often visited street, though we took a couple of stroll down to this lake Zurich after office hours. It was fabulous but during low day light. We were wondering if we will get to see this part in bright day light at all. Weekends during... More

Take a walk along the lake side and see how limitless the beauty of the world is... There are always surprises to see, from wonderful people, to beautiful flowers that blend with the colors of the boats, to the smooth movements of the swans, etc...Totally breathtaking.

One of the few free things to do in the city. If you are lucky and god bless you with good weather don't hesitate to pay a visit to the lake. Great great views and peace

Awesome place. Buy day pass with Zone 1 and 2 included to get a free ride of the boat cruise on the lake Limmet. You get great glimpses of the city center.

there is not much difference between any lake in swiss; be at zurich or lucern, but I enjoyed Lucern boat ride much better than zurich...zurich is a lovely city and switzerland is a tourist friendly country...

Nice lake with a very nice walk around the waterfront with plenty of places to sit and have a cup of coffee or lunch and people watch and enjoy the lake. Great on a sunny day!

We took the 1.5 hour cruise. Even though the day was rainy and we had no view of the distant Alps, the trip was enjoyable. There is covered seating on two levels with tables, as well as outdoor seating. Food is available for purchase. There is no commentary, although there is a brochure that gives a short description of each... More

I love the fact that Zurich is situated right on this lake, making a visit to this city a bit treat for us. There are walking baths hugging the circumference of the lake where Zurich is situated. Lovely planting, trees, boat bobbing in the water, and a fountain,...great place to bring a take away from the local supermarket and have... More

I've seen it only from one share and at the end of the old town, it's a fantastic view a super blue glacier made lake and picture perfect scenery. Love the broad walk close to the opera
