The Zürichsee-Weg (Lake Zurich trail) is a wonderful way to explore Zurich’s glistening lake and its surrounding woodlands, streams, marshlands and historical gems. Come across castles with mountain backdrops, elegant villas with sandy beaches to take a dip and medieval villages to welcome you in for a pitstop on this epic 10 stage circular hike.
The final stage of the tour takes you to the small towns of Rumensee and Schübelweiher, through an expansive forest and pastures before entering the built up streets of downtown Zurich.
