A lake cruise (or a stroll down its bank) is must; it's one of the best ways to appreciate Zurich and the role this lake plays in the lives of locals, especially in the summer.

Beautiful lake in the heart of the city. A sight for all seasons, with beautiful architecture dotting the banks and shopping and eats nearby.

During summer, life in Zurich revolves around the lake. The lake is 32km long and along the shore there are an infinite number of parks and small beaches where you can tan, rend a pedal boat, do a picnic or whatever. There is also a public transportation line that is done by boat and goes around the lake.
A lot of people go out for lunch on the pedal boats - they pack their lunch and have lunch on the boats while tanning a little. Some pedal boats even have slides and stretchers so you can swim and tan.

Lake Zurich is very peaceful, serene, and beautiful. To take in its beauty, one could take a lake cruise or take a stroll down the bank of the lake. Whether, during the day, at sunset or night time, the lake takes on different looks and they are all mesmerizing.

The swans, the little guppies, the parked and moving boats are the perfect accessories to make the lake scene even more surreally mesmerizing.

Eines der beliebtesten Seen in der Schweiz. Es sind einige Boote und Schiffe unterwegs, man sieht wunderbar die Berge wenn die Sicht klar ist.
