Don't Miss in Zurich
Lake Zurich. A ride on the cruise boats that circle Lake Zurich not only affords the opportunity for a closer look at the glacial Alps that lie south of the city, but to enjoy the company of locals who hop on and off the ferry as it stops in communities surrounding the lake. The ride passes extravagant lake homes of the wealthy, charming hotels and quaint Swiss towns beyond the bustle of Zurich. The ferries depart from the Burkliplatz, where you can purchase tickets for short round trips that run around 90 minutes or lengthier options including daylong round trips that service the upper portions of the lake.
