I took a lake cruise using my Swiss Pass. I just had to pay a five Franc service fee. It was pleasant but no commentary about what you were seeing. The views were nice but not as spectacular as those surrounding Lake Luzern.

A chance to see some of the villas up the silver and golden coast of the lake Zurich and then the discovery of Rapperswil, too bad the rose garden wasn't in bloom.

Beautiful lake that offers numerous activities. Starting from Zurich Bürkliplatz one can take a ferry all the way down to Raperswil. There are many options to go bathing in summer. Sailing and rowing are also nice options.

We arrive 8am in Zurich. Our trip is to rent a car and travel - Munich ..Strasbourg..colmar..Evian les Bain's..Montreux.. return to Zurich to fly out. My question is if we spend that first day and night in Zurich , where should we stay and should we go back to airport to rent car. Ideally we would stay at same hotel at end of trip to return car to same location. Thank you for any advice

Zurich has well train connection but it is expensive. I think Oerlikon might be best option because it is middle of zurich center and airport station. It is one station from each. And close by to station there is a Marriott... More

There`s a place to lock away your suitcase at the Zürich Train Main station for a price if one wants to travel around the city before continuing on the journey.
