More highlights along the Region Lake Zurich:
The tiny island of Ufnau on Lake Zurich is a nature reserve and has been the property of Einsiedeln Abbey since 965. Although swimming is prohibited on the island, it is still well worth a visit thanks to its medieval churches and friendly inn.
At Europe's largest indoor water park, water slides with a total length of over 1,800 m (2,000 yards) provide plenty of thrills.
Lumbering Asian elephants, inquisitive African miniature goats, intelligent South American sea lions and agile squirrel monkeys all guarantee a wealth of fascinating experiences.
A relaxed ride on Lake Zurich is part of a visit to this Region. And the chance to get to know the Region from another angle.
