Lake Zurich

The Lake Zurich shipping company offers a comprehensive selection of short and long cruises. In summer the two vintage paddle-steamers also operate alongside the 15 motor-powered cruise ships. And as the shipping company is part of Zurich’s integrated transport network, passengers are able to benefit from extremely attractive tariffs. A cruise on Lake Zurich is relaxation in its purest form, and an experience for all the senses.

The bent, almost banana-shaped Lake Zurich is framed on the southern side by the Albis and Zimmerberg hills and on the north by the Pfannenstiel chain of hills. The lake is bordered by the cantons of Zurich, St.Gallen and Schwyz. At the western end lies Zurich, Switzerland’s largest city.

Brienzer Rothorn – steam mountain

A nostalgic rack railroad driven by steam engines leads up the Brienz Rothorn, which was even in the 19th century one of the most popular vantage points for views in the Bernese Oberland. The train takes about one hour to climb the 1,678 meters difference in height.

Puffing we head on and up in Brienz, while ascending in a second climb from Sörenberg. On the south side with steam since 1892, and aboard large cabins on the mountain railway from the north.

Diavolezza – above the glaciers

Diavolezza, Italian for she-devil, is a popular Engadine mountain. According to legend, a beautiful mountain fairy once upon a time misguided men, so that they vanished forever. Actually, Diavolezza is itself an unbelievably beautiful temptation.

Impressive views as seen from the Piz Palü – above Bellavista and on to Piz Bernina. Simply stand back and marvel, or delight in some kind of adventure: Diavolezza is the perfect spot for both.

Üetliberg – Zurich’s home mountain

Views over Zurich city, the Glarner Alps, central Switzerland and parts of the Mittelland – at best from the climbable viewing tower.
