Water is omnipresent in Zurich and invites residents and guests to engage in all kinds of water-related activities. Swimming, surfing, sailing, stand-up paddling or simply strolling along the water’s edge ‒ the possibilities are endless.
Sea dogs can explore Lake Zurich in an unforgettable way on a cruise operated by the Lake Zurich Navigation Company (ZSG). And a tour of the city directly through the Old Town on board one of the Limmat boats is anyway a must.
With its countless fountains, its many open-air bathing areas by the lake and rivers, and its various waterways, Zurich is the Water City per se. This abundance of water naturally has an impact on the people who live here.
