Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Lake Zurich, Zurich Switzerland

10 am: Start of tour

Total time on the lake is about 2.5 hours and can be adjusted up or down depending on other stops & activities.

Lake Zurich. Formed by the river Linth and itself originating from meltwater of Glarus Alps glaciers in the South, the water exits through the river Limmat in Zurich. Fun fact: lake Zurich last froze up in 1963 and this happens only three times per century on average. Its water is so clean and potable that it is fed into the Zurich city water system after only minimal purification.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Wasserspiel Aquaretum, Mythenquai 25, Zurich 8002 Switzerland

Stop by Lion statue at Enge harbour
Stop by large fountain just outside Enge harbour

Aquaretum. The fountain just outside Enge harbor was designed by artist Andres Bosshard and built by Fischer Architects in 2019 as an update to the previous fountain. It consists of 12 tilted nozzles arranged in a circle producing jets reaching up to 35 m. The jets are directly driven by the weather and by seismic activity worldwide as recorded by ETH Zurich. At dusk and on public holidays LED lights give the fountain a special accent.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Limmat, Zurich Switzerland

Limmat river. It starts in Zurich and flows in a northwesterly direction for 35 km where it joins the Aare. It is a popular bathing spot for locals. In history, travels from Zurich to Koblenz took place as far back as the 12th century.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Grossmünsterplatz, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland

Navigate up the Limmat and stop in front of the Grossmuenster

Grossmünster. This is one of the four largest churches in the city and forms part of Evangelical Reformed Church. It was inaugurated in 1220 and commissioned by Charlemagne.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Kilchberg, Kilchberg

Optional stop at Moenchhof in Kilchberg for coffee

Kilchberg. A small town just south of Zurich. It is famous for its favorable tax regime, its high wealth resident and the Lindt & Sprüngli chocolate factory. We like Kilchberg because of Mönchhof am See, a cozy water-front café/beer garden/restaurant that is just perfect to relax.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Forellenweg, 8038 Zürich, Switzerland

12.30 pm end of boat tour

We were doing a tour with Erik on Lake Zurich in the afternoon as we wanted to explore the city by boat. The whole organization from A to Z was top also with our kid! Erik is an excellent skipper, has the right equipment and a huge knowledge of the best spots to go to. He is very professional and nice company. We had an unforgettable afternoon on his boat. As we have international friends coming over soon we will book his service again, as it is great to know that apart from speaking German he is also fluent in English and French - which is a big plus! I can highly recommend Erik's tours!
