After a long day walking trip ... we finally seated ourself in front of the lake. Nice, cool and calm place with a splendid view to the Icy mountains from here! We seated ourselves here for around an hour enjoying it s beauty! As we had to be fast back we did not have enough time for the boat rides.

I saw many people siting, talking, drinking and listening to music next to the lake. It is a great place to take a break from the sight seeing, and just take in the view. You can see the lake, and the snowy mountains in the background. It is truly beautiful.

If the weather is nice one can enjoy an amazing view of the mountains and relax or stroll through the grassy plots.

One of the top sights in Zurich, both summer and winter. A route from Kussnacht to Rote Fabrik is good to see all the intersecting parts of the lake if you have some days in Zurich

I didn't check their website as i thought tours go daily and hourly. I was mistaken. Anyway, I took note of their tours for Sunday and did the very first one, which was at... More

Lake Zurich is very big and immaculately clean. It was a pleasure to walk around this lake and really enjoy the green areas around it.

We took the short boat trip around the lake (1.5 ) on our first day here. Nice way to c the various towns around the lake and learn a little history (came with a pamphlet that explained historical significance of each town). Can't beat the views!
