A boat trip on the Zurichsee May 22, 2017
One of the sights of Zurich is its beautiful lake, the Zurichsee, surrounded by picturesque mountain scenery, and the best way to enjoy this is to get out on the water. We took a boat from the Bürkliplatz, where all lake cruises depart, to Rapperswil, giving us the chance to travel the full length of the lake, although shorter trips are of course possible. You can use your local transport day pass if you have one, on payment of a 5 CHF supplement. Round trips are of course possible but as we only had an afternoon to spare and wanted to disembark in Rapperswil to see something of that pretty town, we travelled one way only by boat and took the train back to Zurich as this is much quicker (about 30 minutes rather than 90).

There seemed to be relatively limited outside seating on board but we were able to secure great spots at the front of the boat from where to enjoy the views. You can buy a full range of refreshments on board, from drinks through to complete meals – although I didn’t bother, several of our group bought beers to drink out on deck. Prices seemed comparable to those in the city restaurants.
