Seefeld Walking Tour, Zurich

Seefeld Walking Tour (Self Guided), Zurich

Seefeld is the name given to the district on the eastern shore of Lake Zurich, a beautiful part of the city with fantastic vistas and scenery. Come here to unwind in a Zurich destination surrounded by natural splendor. Stroll along the promenade, feed the ducks and then go for a swim in the refreshing water.

There are two designated swimming spots here. Explore even more of the lake by renting a boat. Alternatively, get on one of the water taxis, which operate here from May to September. They are a fantastic way to experience city and lake views. Enjoy more fun in the water at the aqua park at the Strandbad Tiefenbrunnen on the Bellerivestrasse. One of the most popular destinations in this locale is the Blatterwiese, a large meadow where you can sunbathe, picnic and barbecue using the electric grills.

Seefeld also has your catering needs well looked after in its restaurants. As the area has grown and more residents have moved in, a number of trendy bars and eateries have opened up in recent years.
