Tour description

The Au peninsula is an oasis of nature and fruit trees. The arrival by water sets the mood, and gives us the opportunity to travel on the Panta Rhei. We inquire of the ZVV-Contact (Tel. 0848 988 988) when this ship makes the run to the island. We reserve through Zürichsee Gastro (Tel. 044 487 13 13) a table in the first upper deck (Tip: Take one at the front of the boat, there you have the best view on three sides.). As we are taking the Panta Rhei only as far as the Au peninsula, we order just one course. The trip takes an hour, and then the boat docks and we climb up the hill, following the signs to the Weinbaumuseum (wine museum). There we walk along a path that takes us between a picturesque little lake and a vineyard and leads to the castle. Here there is a well cared for park with beautiful trees, inviting us to stay a while. After our siesta we follow the hiking path to Schifflände, the goal of many for picnicking, swimming and sunbathing on sunny days. After walking around the peninsula we take the steamboat Stadt Rapperswil to the city of Rapperswil.
