We took the 90 minute cruise to get an overview of the lake.It was a nice trip with a few stops on the route.I would have liked if there was some commentary while on board,but there was not.It was a nice sunny day and it was a pleasant way to pass away the afternoon.

One of Zurich's most beautiful spots to relax, connect with nature, enjoy a warm summer day, watch locals socialize, photograph, picnic and many more things. Surprised with its beauty and tranquility. Easy to get to by public transport, car or taxi. No cost to enjoy.

Ventured out along the lake from the old town to the casino area, taking in the scenery, outdoor sculptures, and architecture. It was a perfect stroll: sunshine, water, blue sky, warm weather, no rain! Popular activity as there were many others out and about as well.
