Round trips departing Rapperswil

Short round trips

Summer
Depart from Rapperswil for the trip to the Au peninsula. It was here in 1651 that General Hans Rudolf Werdmüller – an eminent officer in Swiss military history – created his country residence with its fine views of Lake Zurich. Even then rest and relaxation was a highly rated pleasure.

This Short round trip from/to Rapperswil departs several times daily and lasts approximately one and a half hours.

Medium round trips

Summer
On this round trip we pass the old Wädenswil Brewery (1883–1990), which used to deliver beer to lakeside guest-houses by boat. And if that's a sight which makes you feel thirsty, why not enjoy a refreshing drink along the way? Choose from our selection of beers, fine wines and non-alcoholic beverages.

Daily departures every hour from/to Rapperswil. Passengers have to change boats at Erlenbach, Thalwil or Meilen.

Long round trips

Summer
Whether you look to the left or to the right, the Lake Zurich shoreline offers so many sightseeing attractions. You can also simply close your eyes, listen to the language of the water birds, feel the balmy breeze, and let the sun caress your skin. Rest and relaxation guaranteed.

This Long round trip lasts for four fascinating hours, departing several times daily from Rapperswil to Zurich – or in the opposite direction.

Upper lake round trip

Summer
When the trip is by steamboat, there's little room for error as the captain skilfully manoeuvres his – or her – vessel through the narrow dam at Hurden. Not only does the mast have to be titled. Even the boat funnel has to be lowered. Passengers can only watch in wonder.

The three-hour upper lake round trip departs twice daily from Rapperswil. Take advantage of the stopover in Schmerikon for a leisurely scenic stroll.
