  • This lake is very close to the a nice shopping area. We got of at the Jungfernstieg station and from here on we could enjoy the lake and do some shopping. 
  • This 7,4 km long trip around Aussenalster is most enjoying. There is a very fine life and natur to see along the way. Best in clear weather.
