This is my hometurf, if I need to slow down, hang loose, have nature deep dive starting on Zurich downtown Bürkliplatz. You just need 2 hours and 10 bucks for a roundtrip. Booking upgrade to first class on upper deck is worth the money as you get a better view and less people. As a contrarian I love early morning... More

Defines Zurich city.. The lake provide perfect summer place for people across all ages and it's always serene and calming to see the lake surrounded by green or snow-capped mountain around it

The cruise from Zurich to Rapperswil is amazing, with breathtaking landscape all around. The Zurich end of the lake has some excellent restaurants, some right on the lake itself.

I've been doing lots of thing near the lake, and have many good memories involving the lake. But the first time I actually went on a boat trip across the lake, was my last day in Zurich. the good-bye day In a way, it was worth the wait. And there are no "I wish I would have done it earlier"... More

We did the short trip, coionsiusting of the settled suburban partys of the lake shores. Sailing conditions were perfect and we got inspirational views... More
