Do I need to reserve in advance for the boat cruise? If so by how many days?thanks in advance
Reservations are not needed.
Thanks for the quick response
If you plan your boat trip in the months June - September, you should choose an old nostalgic steam boat. There are two on the lake Zurich: They are called "Stadt Zurich" from 1910 and "Stadt Rapperswil" from 1914. They have 2 classes, 1st (upper deck) and 2nd class If you buy a ZVV-ticket: www.zvv.ch/zvv-assets/abos-und-tickets/zonen/tarifzon en_dez_15.pdf you pay nothing and the ticket is also guilty on boats, busses, cable-cars in the whole Zurich (+lake) area.
Have a good trip!!! Myself was living in Kilchberg at the lake near Zurich. There is the first chocolate fabric of Lindt!!
