The transportation system is amazing. A day pass will get you the train, bus, and light rail. Venture out on a self tour of the City and include the lake. They even list times of the buses at the main stops electronically and they are accurate.

Travel Preparation: One can easily plan entire Swiss trip on his own. I preferred planning my Swiss trip on my own rather than opting for a prescribed tour package from travel agents because tour packages were not flexible and were lot confusing with various exclusions, add-on clauses and innumerable terms & conditions. My self-planned Swiss itinerary of 7 nights and... More

We took the boat to do the short trip (about half an hour) in the lake of Zurich. It was a wonderful trip where you can see the beauties of Zurich and take a lot of photos. I certainly recommend to take the trip in this beautiful lake!!

Great lake to walk around, or sit & admire the views. Lots of snack places & restaurants. Chinese Gardens are nearby. Boat trips on the lake are great fun.

One of our old grandfathers Friederich Wilhelm S. came in 1870 (!) to Zurich/ Switzerland. He bought a house directly at the lake of Zurich, and this house is one of the very few houses, that has been still in the hands of our family all the more than 146 (!) years. His children and grandchildren and grand-grandchildren were born... More
