In summer, Lake Zurich is a popular excursion destination. Here you can bathe, sail or enjoy a picnic on a secluded spot – such as on the tiny island of Lützelau. In addition, there are countless opportunities to try out new sports, such as stand-up paddling, windsurfing or waterskiing.
In winter, too, there is plenty of fun to be had by the lake. Ice-skating fans can show off their ice-skating skills at the ice rinks in Küsnacht and Wädenswil, situated directly next to the lake shore. In theory, it is even possible to skate on the lake itself – although only when it is completely frozen over. And the last time that happened was in winter 1963.
