The region was known to visitors from the North already during the Middle Ages. Lake Zu��rich is situated on the route taken by the Jacob pilgrims who also visited Rapperswil on their way to Santiago de Compostela. A somewhat unsafe, tortuous wooden footbridge with loosely laid planks helped them make their way across the lake. The footbridge was replaced by a new, 841-metre long modern bridge in 2001. Crossing this new bridge is a unique experience.
