Lake Zurich


Switzerland facts and history in brief

Lake Zurich

Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Lake Zurich (Alemannic: Zürisee; German: Zürichsee) is a lake in Switzerland, extending southeast of the town of Zürich.
It is also known as Lake Zürich and Lake of Zürich.
It lies approximately at co-ordinates 47°15'N 8°41'E.

Geographically, Lake Zürich is located in the southwestern part of the canton of Zürich.
To the east of the lake are two minor lakes,
Greifensee (Lake Greifen) and Pfäffikersee (Lake Pfäffikon).

It is formed by the river Linth, which, rising in the glaciers of the Tödi Range in Glarus, was diverted by the Escher canal (completed in 1811) into the Lake Walen, whence, by means of the Linth canal (completed in 1816), its waters are carried to the east end of the lake of Zürich.
This river issues from the lake at its north-west end, passing through the town of Zürich, but is then called the Limmat.

During 1978, my daughter, Sarolta and I spent some time travelling around Switzerland, visiting many cities and other attractions.

We have enjoyed our boat trip on Lake Zurich.
