The landscape surrounding Lake Zurich is not only one of the world’s most prestigious areas to dwell, but in addition a greatly contrasting hikers’ paradise that cradles a multitude of pleasant surprises: historical towns and villages, unspoilt shorelines, woods, bubbling streams and a variety of restaurants.

The Linth glacier shaped the lake basin in the surrounding countryside of Zurich around 12,000 years ago. And the picturesque legacy left by the ice - originally appreciated by the Hapsburgs, Romans, and Alemannians alike - today represents one of Switzerland’s most prestigious addresses.
