Lake Zurich

Great place to see Zurich from the water. You can go on a round boat trip for a minimum of 90 minutes or longer if you choose. Depending on which tour you choose. Well worth a try.

Used the Zurich card and went on the rundfahrt - a lovely round trip. Even had Santa get on board and say hello. You can get beers, teas, coffee, gluhwein and food on board. Apparently a five franc supplement will be required in addition to the Zurich card going ahead, which is a shame but still a recommended lake trip.

Went here on a chilly December weekday. It was a beautiful sight and although we didn't take a boat trip, just walking along the water side was peaceful and beautiful. Definitely take a walk over there if you can!

The tour visits a number of stops on both sides of the lake and offers amazing views as you travel around the lake. Traveling in late November meant it was cold... More

We had a 72 HR public transportation pass which allowed us to take the ferry ride to different stops on the lake. It's worth the time to see the view from the lake. It's list as the number on thing to do on trip advisor. I wouldn't call it number one but if your in Zurich it's a nice boat... More

Boat trip takes 1 1/2H to complete. Good time to relax and have a view Zurich city. Beverages are served during the boat trip. You can take wonderful photos. Do not miss it.

Expected it to be more interesting.More of a restaurant on board than a tour. Guided tour would help.
