Lake Zurich

Just a few steps away from Park Hyatt Zurich is the beautiful lake of Zurich. The bank of the lake invites long walks and jogging and is a beautiful recreational area during any seasons.


Food and beverages
Dine in one of the beautifully located restaurants on Lake Zurich and try some of the regional specialities such as perch fillet from Lake Zurich or “Zurich Geschnetzeltes” (sliced veal in a cream sauce served with rösti).


Sunbathing and swimming in Zurich
Zurich offers plenty of nice opportunities for a swim in the lake of Zurich or River Limmat. The water is among the cleanest in Europe and is perfect for swimming and sunbathing. There is the possibility of just jumping into the lake almost anywhere, but the city also has official outdoor swimming baths, many of them with facilities such as cloakrooms, toilets and kiosks. Many of them have an entrance fee, but the ones on the river are usually free. In the evening, many of them turn into lively open-air bars.


Boat trips 
In the past, the lake was mainly used as a highway and a place of transportation.  Today, it is a well-known, appealing destination for tourists coming from near and far.  Taking a boat trip on a sunny day in the summer is no doubt one of the most enjoyable ways to spend a day in the region.


Boat trip from Zurich Bürkliplatz to Rapperswil
A popular route on the lake of Zurich is from nearby Bürkliplatz (a five minute walk from Park Hyatt Zurich) to the picturesque town of Rapperswil with its famous castle that dates back to the Middle Ages. This scenic trip takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes.
