Nice lake even in bad weather. If you like to walk - this place is for you. You can walk along, feed the swans and ducks and watch the scenery. Very beautiful!

This is nice, not enjoyable during the winter time. But a good place to enjoy the view. This is one of the iconic rivers of the city.

This is one of the most amazing lakes in Switzerland. Not the biggest but one of the most beautiful ones. Try a boat trip!

Aside from the one stated above, it is easy to access, we just hope that the boat tours can be easily located. I am not really complaining about it, might be my fault for not asking directions. You can feed birds too!
