Lago – Zurich’s Nautical Center

Rent a boat and enjoy Zurich from the water – against a spectacular backdrop extending from the Old Town as far as the Alps.

The Lago is located at Utoquai, not far from Zurich Opera House. On sunny days, you can rent a pedalboat or motorboat and leave the bustling lakeside promenade far behind you. On some of the smaller motorboats, you can skipper your own vessel without requiring a boat license. Alternatively, you can hire a yacht complete with skipper – with options ranging from the classic sport yacht to a Dutch wooden boat made from teak and mahogany. After your boat trip, you can relax in the lakeside lounge under a huge shade sail and enjoy a refreshing drink.

The Lago is also a training center for people wanting to gain a motorboat or sailing license for inland lakes or the high seas.
