We only walked around the Lake Zurich. You can do that for hours. It was very pleasant. The only downside it that it is difficult to find toilets alongside the banks.

Enjoyed the perfect views. Busy trip, too cold for most people to enjoy the views. You can buy tickets on board the boat as the ticket machines are not very clear in explaining what type of ticket is required. Drinks and food are available.
