The leisure area along the banks of the Limmat begins directly behind Zurich's main railway station. While taking a walk or a pleasant bike ride, it offers plenty of space to switch off from the hectic everyday life. Whether for a coffee or a glass of wine, plenty of establishments along the way invite you to take a break.
Dive into the culture of Switzerland
The first eye-catcher as you head down the river is the National Museum with its stunning architecture. In its rooms and halls, the National Museum displays the largest collection of cultural history in Switzerland. Concerts and other cultural events are regularly held in the inner courtyard. The bordering Platzspitz Park is considered an oasis of tranquillity.
River baths for warm summer days
On warm summer days, the several free river baths along the Limmat invite you to take a well-deserved refreshing dip. Let yourself float in the Flussbad Oberer Letten, Flussbad Unterer Letten, GZ Wipkingen or on the Werdinsel, and watch the colourful scenery while having a cosy picnic. That's how the perfect summer day goes in Zurich.
Boat trip with a view
For those who have not had enough of the Limmat after a long walk and a visit to the swimming baths, a river cruise is the ideal activity. The panorama boat cruises leisurely past the landmarks of Zurich's old town such as the guild houses, the town hall, Lindenhof square, and the Grossmünster church. The journey eventually ends in Lake Zurich.
