    We walked over to take a look at the lake and thought what a spectacular sight of the alps against the water. I enjoyed the surrounding scenery and beautiful trees.

    Beautiful body of water located in the center of the city. Gives the city a very nice touch, picturesque one. Saw some boats around as well

    Since there is no ocean or formal beach area to go to in Zurich, the Limmat River serves that purpose. We were at the Marriott and the bridge just across from it was a fun and popular spot for jumping into the river. The nearby restaurant added to the scene. But it was very popular on weekends. As you move up the river you will encounter other areas similar and see many jumping off points. The Limmat is crystal clear and very clean which is why it is so popular.

    It's a nice, clean spot to swim in lake zurich. The bathrooms are clean and the bar is decent. Recommended if you want to just sunbathe, or swim, or have a drink.

    walking all along the river downstreams, you will come to this little island located in the river, with its swimming area and a cultural institution with restaurant. a nice stroll to come here and a pleasant place to pass a sunny summer day.
