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!!
