Zurich attracts tourists from all over the world and is often mistaken for the capital of Switzerland (which is actually Bern). The lake certainly gives the city its charm, in summer, the water invited swimmers and in winter the lake is simply majestic surrounded by the city's builduings and mountains. There are parks all along the shore and invite for... More

We took a boat cruse on Lake Zurich, using our Zurich (discount) Card, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. In addition to the hour and a half cruise, we enjoyed a delicious lunch, which was quite reasonable, and certainly convenient inside the warm cabin. Don't miss out on this scenic cruise while in Zurich!

We are living close to the lake. In the summer time you can swim in almost cristal clear water. Also you can walk or run on the Seeufer-Weg (boarder way).

... when you have swam in the ocean a lake will no longer do, everything else has been a pond ... most times during summer the lake is extremely crowded, but during winter a quite peacefull place ...

A lovely recreational area all around the lake which is best seen on a sunny day of course when the water looks blue and if the sky is clear you can see the snow covered mountains in the background. An unforgettable experience if you can swim in one of the Strandbäder dotted along the shoreline and see the mountains at... More

Great place to relax, swim have some picknick etc. in the middle of the city. After shopping at the Bahnhofstrasse you can walk to the lake. Approx. 15min walking distance from the main train station.

I went on the ferry trip around the lake and it is a great way to see Both sides of Lake ZURICH. It was cold on the day that we went so I would advise people to wrap up warm (depending on the time of year). You can get food and drink on the boat and the crew are very... More

A group of 5 of us visited the lake and entered the paid recreational area, where we set up mats and also went swimming in the lake! Water was cold but we got used to it, we also spent some time diving from the diving platform in the middle of the lake, was amazing! We also had some good food... More

Was in Zurich and spent the day biking around lake Zurich. It's a really nice lake with a lot of different gorgeous views as you go around. There is a walking trail and biking trail around a nice part of the lake. There are places the to feed the birds and benches to just sit and relax. Would recommend for... More
