Lake Zurich is big: 25 mi (40 km) long and 1.9 mi (3 km) wide. At its deepest it reaches 469 ft (143 m). The water is very clean, coming off those Swiss mountains, and is used for supplying water to the cities around it. The largest of these is Zurich at around 360,000 residents.
The lake is used for boating and swimming, reaching up to 20 degrees Celcius (68 F) in summer. Along its edges are dotted swimming pools - these are floating pontoon decks with change rooms, sunbathing areas and usually saunas, massage and a cafe. They are open May-October. Parks line the lakeside and fill with people picnicking, roller-blading and sunbathing in summer. Even the police patrol on rollerblades!
Very very nice tour! Highly recommend it! We're from Florida and based our reservation on reviews and we were not disappointed! Beautiful city and the tour guide was VERY knowledgeable. Enjoy!!
Excellent tour guide and it was a fun day. i upgraded my tour to include Heidi land and L/stein. Climbing was tough on weak kness but I enjoyed it. Good cheesecake in Rapperwill. our group was made up of people from all parts of the world. Great!
The pollution free atmosphere of Zurich impressed us very much. Very scenic city.
Zurich wraps itself around the lake so it's not hard to find. There are lovely paths and parks beside the lake so buy an ice-cream and take a stroll.
