Zurich can be reached by car or by train (recommended). The main boat docks in Zurich can be reached on foot or by tram.
How to get to the boat dock
There are many towns along the lake to board the boats. The main boat docks in Zurich are:
- 'Zürich Bürkliplatz': this is where the lake cruises start. It's located at the end of the famous Bahnhofstrasse. You can get there on foot from the central station in about 20 minutes, or by tram.
- 'Zürich Landesmuseum': this is where the Limmat river cruises depart. It's located right next to the central rail station, besides the Swiss National Museum. It takes 3 minutes on foot from the station.
Dates of operation
The boats operate all year round, but on a reduced schedule between until April 1 2023 and from mid- to late October 2023. Please check again later for further dates.
