Discover the magic of lake Zurich!

We’ll tour the northern part of the lake close to Zurich, at night: we’ll start off in Wollishofen and head towards Enge and the Old Town.

First, we’ll pass the Lion statue by Enge harbor, then we’ll stop by the famous and lit Aquaretum fountain to take some photos.

10 minutes later we’ll enter the Limmat river by going under the Quaibrücke before reaching the Grossmünster on the right and the Fraumünster on the left, our half-way mark. Here we’ll marvel at the spectacle of lights.
On the way back to Wollishofen we’ll enjoy the views of the Zurich Gold and Silver coasts on either side of us.

If you are interested, you can experiment steering the boat and learn about navigation at night.

Note: You can book transfers, otherwise please make your own arrangements to and from the base in Wollishofen.

You can add a 1 hour extension as an option as you start the booking process if you would like to have more time on the water.

What To Expect

Lake Zurich
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.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Wasserspiel Aquaretum
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.

5 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

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.

5 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

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.

An diesen Abend werde ich lange zurückdenekn

Diesmal wollte ich einer ganz besonderen Dame etwas anderes bieten: ohne zu viel Aufwand oder ohne es zu kitschig zu gestalten. Deswegen war eine Bootsfahrt auf dem Zürichsee an einem lauen Sommerabend genau das richtige.
Wir trafen uns in der Nähe vom Hafen in einer Bar. Nach dem ersten Glas Champagner sagte ich Ihr, dass ich eine Überraschung für sie habe. An dem Leuchten in ihren Augen bemerkte ich, dass Ihr diese spontane Art gefällt. Ich war auf dem richtigen Weg: alles lief harmonisch. Als sie das Boot sah, und ich ihr sagte, dass wir eine kleine Bootsfahrt machen, war sie völlig hingerissen. Jetzt konnte nichts mehr schiefgehen. Die Abendlichter von Zürich spiegelten sich in dem ruhigen Wasser: es war eine traumhafte Stimmung. Während wir ein weiteres Glass Champagner tranken, kamen wir uns auch schon näher. Ich berührte sanft Ihre Hand und unsere Lippen küsste sich. An diesen Abend werde ich lange zurückdenken.
