Water in Zurich Tour

Fountains, rivers and the lake – water is everywhere in Zurich. This tour showcases the city´s affinity for water in all its forms.

Zurich´s cityscape is adorned with over 1,200 public fountains – with fresh, crystal clear drinking water that everyone can enjoy for free.

On this tour, you will learn the importance of the Sodbrunnen and Zisternenbrunnen fountains that date back to the Middle Ages and visit a selection of heavily symbolic fountains such as the Hercules Fountain and the Lindenhof Fountain, dedicated to the brave women of Zurich.

You will also find out where Zurich´s first water pipes were laid and where the scoop wheels used to turn. The city´s many swimming spots by the river and the lake – lovingly referred to as Badi by the locals – are also included in the tour.
