Nice surroundings but nothing much. Few activities, better walk along the lake and enjoy the scenery.

beautiful landscape, swiss pure, calm, understatement (when having a house here you must be good). Enjoy the swiss alps on the bank across direction South and just feel good. It´s a iconic place this lake.

Expectations were greatly inaccurate. We took a Taxi Boat to a few stops along the lake and also toured areas alongside the lake. The views were magnificent and scenic.

boat rides help you to enjoy. Water is surprisingly clear. views up the embankments are wonderful. Houses help create a wonderful scene along the banks

Easy access from Bellevue stop on most trams. It is easy to feel the beautiful charm of Zurich while also gazing at the close-by Alps.

Although it was raining and bit chilly, visit to Zurich( my third) is not complete without a ferry ride in lake Zurich. It was bit crowded for a ferry of its size, we still enjoyed the ride of 90min taking it across various scenic spots. Decent selection of wine and drinks on board.

Depending on how much time you have you can get on one of the lake zurich boats and explore the lake. I suggest to do at least the medium roundtrip. But also an excursion all the way to Rapperswil is nice and be sure to get off and visit the castle which is just a short walk from the boat... More
