Ship ahoy! Zurich’s crowning jewel is its lake. Enjoy the view of the city and Lake Zurich’s lakeside communities from a new perspective.
Make yourself comfortable on one of the boats of the Lake Zurich Navigation Company (ZSG), take a look at the Lake Zurich guide, and learn what you have always wanted to know about Zurich’s most attractive recreation area.
On the river cruises of the “small” and “big” tour along the left and right bank of Lake Zurich, selected points of interest (POI), landmarks, and attractions are presented, highlighting each of the twenty-two ship’s stations and listed so that these are available on Google Maps from the opposite bank [link to Google Map].
For example, the former owner of the estate „Traubenberg“ in Zollikon was mayor Heinrich Escher, who introduced one of the first chocolates from Brussels to Switzerland in 1697, or that the Swiss national drink RIVELLA was invented in Stäfa. From the ship, and using the special map available on Google Maps, you can identify the most visited sites, such as Richard Wagner’s “Asylum on the Green Hill,” Villa Schönberg, hidden behind trees, C. G. Jung’s house in Küsnacht, or the Villa Abendstern, which served as inspiration to Robert Walser’s novel. If you want, you can also get off at one of the stops to see the sights mentioned in the travel guide or stop at one of the beautiful lakeside restaurants, then return to Zurich.
