    Limmat
    The Limmat river commences its journey at the outfall of Lake Zurich, in the southern part of the city of Zurich. From Zurich it flows in a northwesterly direction across the city joined by the Sihl river near Zurich bus terminus and after 35 km reaching the river Aare. Wild swans, ducks and other aquatic birds can be seen on the Limmat river alongside Zurich city.

    An integral part of the old town
    One cannot miss Limmat river while being in the city. In the old town, you would also run into it again and again as you make way from one landmark to another. There are several restaurants along side which are good place to spend time in the evening. You can see the boats all docked in early morning. We did not go for a Limmat river ride but had several walks along it.

    A river in the heart if the city
    This is a simply a river in the downtown area of Zurich but flanked by many interesting and beautiful structures. It offers great picture opt . It to the vibrancy and natrual beauty of the city. After all its just a body of water flowing through the city.

The new (2023) boats are dreadful. You can`t see out of them. The earlier favourable reviews refer to the previous boats now withdrawn. The design of the new boats seems to have been inspired by the "padded cell" carriages of the City & South London Railway. Their excuse was that the journey was entirely in tunnel so there was nothing to see anyway. But the Limmat ferry is advertised as a scenic cruise from which to see Zurich from the water. The new boats are not fit for purpose.

We descended from Lindenhof hill and went to the river to enjoy the sights and sat by a roadside restaurant to eat the famous Swiss Cheese Fondue.

This is tricky to review because, after all, it's just a river in a city. That said, the city does have many wonderful buildings along both side of the river which make the overall impact much more than just average.

Stay away. Very hard to see out because of reflections on the glass. The walls below the glass make a poor viewing angle. The heat inside is like a hot house with no air moving. I thought I was going to pass out. The girls working the boat prevent any photos from being taken through the hatch when it's open and the boat is at the dock. This is the worst tourist attraction I have ever been on. Sad because it could be good. The girls are loud and only act nice when you are leaving the boat. Horrible I regret I didn't get off at the first stop.

Great walk and stroll, even at night, watching the water and the royal swans. A city I would return to.

The Limmat River runs through the heart of Zürich. The rivers origin is at Lake Zurich, and from there it flows through Zurich and beyond in a Northeasternly direction. In addition to a leisurely walk along the river, you can bike, take a boat ride, and even swim in certain areas, when the weather permits. Since we visited in December we enjoyed the Limmat River as we explored the beautiful Altstadt, with numerous bridges spanning the Limmat it was easy to cross from one Christmas Market to the next, and from one historical attraction to another! Beautiful Limmat River, beautiful Zurich, and beautiful Switzerland!
