Lake Zurich is located in the southeast of the city, and it's proudly one of the most beautiful environments that you can find in this destination. Not only is it known as the cleanest lake in the country, it's also a natural wonder surrounded by mountains, forests, and some landscapes that will amaze you. This is one of the busiest areas during the summer season and at weekends, as it offers numerous attractions like some flat shores, public gardens; the possibility of sailing, boat tours, and so many leisure and sports activities with nature being the common denominator. Lake Zurich starts at the estuary of the Linth river, and at the beginning of the area and civilization that ended up being Zurich. The lake was a strategic place during the Roman invasion that was easy to defend.
