Nature

The immense green areas inside the city are ideal places for tranquility and getting in contact with nature, and are only overcome in terms of beauty by the banks of the lake and the mountains.

The banks of Lake Zurich are very popular with people wanting to spend a few hours of tranquility, observing the landscape and enjoying warmer days. In the city, there are places like the Zürichhorn, famous for its Chinese gardens or the Bruno Webers Weinrebenpark, where garden areas are full of sculptures. The Bächlihof Farm of the Knies Zoo is ideal for children, as they join green areas and entertainment with educational activities. But for those who want to go beyond in terms of getting in touch with nature, a visit to the 2,850-metres high Uetliberg Mountains is something not to be missed, where you can enjoy a delightful view over the city and the lake. In the summer, these are very popular for sledging, while in the Summer, they become a paradise for the ones who prefer walking and cycling. The Reno waterfalls (www.rheinfall.ch), near Schaffhausen, are the largest in Europe and can be observed in boat rides. The Sihl forest (www.wildnispark.ch), with its vast natural park, is equally relaxing. As well as walks and guided tours, there are interactive forest paths. The Wildnis Park (www.wildnispark.ch) is an excellent opportunity for those who enjoy watching animals in their natural habitat: bears, wolves and lynx are among the residents of this natural park.
