Cruise on the boat to the Rapperswil castle is well worth your time in Zurich, whether you are there for a day or a week. Buy a sandwich and some eclairs at Sprungli (a few blocks away from the dock before you leave and have a gourmet cruise. When you get to the castle, do your tour then have ice... More

The best way to see the beautiful zurich. The short round trip is about 9 swiss francs and take about 1.5 hours. I suggest you take something to eat and drink with you.

Since we were there in winter, there were limited activities. I am sure in the summer it is really full of interesting things to do and see. But even in the winter, it was a lovely place to walk.

While we were in Zurich, temps reached 100 degrees F. To say the least, it was hot! While this is an easy walk from the Marriott, you may want to consider taking a ride on the train down to the lake. When we arrived, the Ironman Zurich was in progress which was a nice treat, although the athletes were burning... More

We walked half way around the lake from our hotel location, and ended up at the marina. The water is fresh and clean, and everyone is bathing or putting their feet in it. Glacier-fed lakes were a first for me and a real treat.

A visit to Zurich will be incomplete without a boat trip in Lake Zurich. Needless to say that we can enjoy the beauty of the lake as well as of the shore from the boat.Our cameras will have no rest as such is the scenic beauty around.The hill slops with wineyards and typical Swiss villas are a treat to the...

Catch this ferry at the far end of Old Town on Burkllplotz. Ticket booth is located there next to the boat docks. One can eat at adjacent food stands while waiting for one's boat or else eat onboard. At first, we tried to catch a connection to this ferry from Old Town along the Limmat River, but no luck because... More

Awesome place must visit . Just a walk around the lake is so pleasing. Saw locals fishing cycling and even reading book on and around the lake.
