Lake Zurich

Local nameZürichsee

This picturesque lake in Zurich is all one could wish for after a long and tiring day. It is the perfect place to wind down and relax while watching the beautiful scenery. Do not miss out on the opportunity to take a cruise on the lake, and see the skyline of this beautiful area. It is a must-see while you are here.

Apart from relaxing, this place is like heaven for sport enthusiasts, who love swimming, wakesurfing, waterskiing or wakeboarding. The perfect time for these activities is late August, but the water temperature is usually way above 20°C during the whole summer.

The area around the lake is a popular tourist destination, which means there are plenty of restaurants, bars, playgrounds and fitting rooms. On top of that, there are a few nudist beaches, which are very common in Switzerland.

This place combines favourite summer activities with an outstanding view of the Alps. The water quality is amazing, it is very clean and it also goes into Zurich's water system after purification.

In case you plan to eat around here, prepare your wallet, as it can get pretty pricey. There are plenty of ways to get here, some of them being by trams 2, 4, 5, 8, 9 and 11, tram stop Bürkliplatz, or by buses 161 and 165, bus stop Schweizer Rück.
