Lake Zurich

I grew up in a country surrounded with beaches so that it was quite a sacrifice when we moved here in Germany for my husband's international assignment. The next best thing to the beach are the lakes... they call the lakes here See so that it still sounds like the sea. Going to the lake especially in the warm season is one of the many recreational activities here in Europe. Most would camp out in these areas and do water sports. When opportunities to visit lakes present themselves, we try to take advantage of it as much as we can.

And so it was mid-May of this year that we decided to give Zurich a visit and see Lake Zurich for ourselves.

Lake Zurich is one of the popular destinations in Switzerland. It is a place where one can relax, watch the ducks and swans dance on the water, or take ferry boat rides. It was a chilly and cloudy day when we went to Zurich for a visit but the view afforded by the Lake was still breathtaking. As you can see from our photos, are clouds are heavy and very low, threatening rain. Luckily for us, it only began to drizzle when we were on our way back to the garage where we parked our car.

It was very easy to reach the Lake because it is located right at the heart of the city. It was one of our first stops on that day. There are also lots of historical landmarks located near the vicinity which all make up for a memorable visit.
