Tour description

The flat topography around Lake Zurich makes this tour just right for everyone.

From Rapperswil you pedal along the right side of the lake to Zurich and from there on the other side to Pfäffikon. Now comes the upper lake, and you continue to Lachen, Tuggen and Schmerikon, finally ending up in Rapperswil once again. If you don’t want to pedal this far, the tour can be shortened by crossing the lake at the dam (Pfäffikon - Rapperswil) or taking the ferry from Meilen to Horgen.


Alternative A: Across the lake dam from Pfäffikon to Rapperswil.
Alternative B: Take the ferry from Meilen to Horgen.


Along the Seestrasse there is a biking lane.
