Explore Zurich by Boat

A boat trip is the perfect way to explore Zurich from a different perspective.

The city of Zurich nestles around the upper end of Lake Zurich, while the River Limmat flows right through the middle of the city. So what better way is there to explore the city and surrounding area than on a boat trip?

Creative city explorers can enjoy a leisurely spot of sightseeing from the water on board the Limmat boats, “Felix”, “Regula”, and “Turicum”.

In addition, those who would like to get a different view of the villages dotted along the shores of Lake Zurich or visit the picturesque town of Rapperswil can do so in comfort on a cruise on one of the boats departing from Bürkliplatz.
