Nice Family Spot

There's a nice playground for the kids, barbecues, park benches and even a little bar. A pleasant walk takes you around the lake through the forest and farming land. The area... read more

Katzensee is the secret swimming hole of many Zurichers not needing any poshness but a beautiful lake with lovely landscape and warm natural water, sometimes swimmers go there up to the first snowfall.
