Zürichsee-Rundweg

Zürichsee-Rundweg

The landscape surrounding Lake Zurich is not only one of the world’s most prestigious areas to dwell, but in addition a greatly contrasting hikers’ paradise that cradles a multitude of pleasant surprises: historical towns and villages, unspoilt shorelines, woods, bubbling streams and a variety of restaurants.
The Linth glacier shaped the lake basin in the surrounding countryside of Zurich around 12,000 years ago. And the picturesque legacy left by the ice - originally appreciated by the Hapsburgs, Romans, and Alemannians alike - today represents one of Switzerland’s most prestigious addresses.

The Zürichsee-Weg shows the versatile region at its best; passing historical towns and villages, castle parks, settlements with noble villas, unspoilt shorelines, extensive woods and wild, bubbling streams. And on its ten attractive legs, the Zürichsee route offers additional palatable pleasures: with a variety of restaurants ranging from simple country restaurant, to gourmet restaurants and first-class wineries literally on the sidewalk. A number of sport and recreation areas, museums, cinemas and platforms are also discovered.

This route offers enjoyment pure for hikers, bikers, culture and nature lovers; not forgetting historians and gourmets with a love for good food! Hikers are spoilt for choice with ten ideal departure points along the route – and each leg of the journey holds individual highlights of its own.
