Lake Zurich - Zurich, Switzerland

The lake is certainly one of the highlights and a walk along the shores is a must if yo're in Zurich, whatever the season.  Start for example at Bellevue and walk along the promenade towards Zurichhom.  After a few hundred metres a park with trees and a lawn fills the expanse between the lake and the street.
The huge Blatterwiese, also known as Chinawiese because the Chinese garden is just next to it, is popular for relaxing, sunbathing or playing sports.  There is also a playground for kids.  Continuing you get to Zurichhom, a small delta with some lakeside restaurants and later still to the railway station. Tiefenbrunnen where you can hop on a tram (or train) back to Bellevue.
The western shore of the lake is a bit less popular though just as nice for a walk .Start at the Arboretum and walk along the shore passing Enge port, the cactuses of Sukkulentensammlung, and the Mythenquai until you reach the Landweise, a large field where many cultural events take place. If you go just a little further, you canenjoy a beer in the restaurant of the offstream cultural centre Rote Fabrik, red factory, marked by the red brick factory chimney.
