Round trips departing Zurich

River Limmat cruises

Rest and relax on a half-hour round trip in the Lake Zurich basin, and enjoy the finest views of Zurich's skyline. Take a River Limmat cruise passing the most attractive sights of the city's old town quarter. Or better still, enjoy the best of both – without having to change boats.

Short round trips

Depart from Zurich Bürkliplatz. At Kilchberg breathe in the enticing aroma from a world-famous chocolate factory. At Erlenbach catch a glimpse of a historic wine-growing village. And at the Zürihorn see the «Heureka» sculptural machine created by Swiss artist Jean Tinguely. Then return to Bürkliplatz, rested and relaxed.

This cruise lasts one and a half hours, departing every 30 minutes from/to Zurich  Bürkliplatz. Daily from 09.10 to 18.40 hrs, from May to September even to 19.40 hrs.

Daily round trip at 12.40 and 14.10h. And additional departures at weekends and on public holidays.
Saturdays/Sundays with on-board restaurant. (Monday to Friday no gastronomy)

Medium round trips

This three-hour cruise takes you along the shoreline of Lake Zurich with its idyllic attractions – among them the towns of Küsnacht, Wädenswil and the Au peninsula. And if you fancy a delicious brunch along the way, take the popular Sunday Summer Brunch Cruise (without changing).
Daily departures every hour from/to Zurich Bürkliplatz. Change boats at Männedorf, Richterswil or Stäfa.

Long round trips

Take the trip from Zurich to Rapperswil. And because it's so beautiful – the same route back again. Discover at leisure the delights of Lake Zurich and its scenic surroundings.

Not to be missed is the romantic evening ambience at the sunset cruise.

This Long round trip departs hourly from/to Zurich Bürkliplatz. A top tip – leave the boat in Rapperswil for a leisurely stroll through the enchanting old town.

Daily departure at 13.30 h from/to Zürich Bürkliplatz.

Upper lake round trip

This trip takes you to two different worlds. From the hustle and bustle of busy Lake Zurich with its motor boats and sailing yachts, the cruise continues through a narrow canal at Pfäffikon to the calmer upper lake. Here nature protection reserves and historic convents characterize the landscape.

The Upper lake round trip departs twice daily from Zurich Bürkliplatz. Take advantage of the stopover in Schmerikon for a leisurely scenic stroll.
