Horgen is a municipality in the district of Horgen in the canton of Zürich in Switzerland.It is one of the larger towns along the south bank of the Lake of Zurich.HistoryHorgen is also the type-site of Switzerland's middle Neolithic archaeological culture. The settlement there, the so-called Horgner Kultur (Horgen culture), produced examples of a type of crude pottery with parallels to the Seine-Oise-Marne culture of northern France. Horgen is first mentioned in 952 as Horga.GeographyHorgen has an area of 21.1km2. Of this area, 27.7% is used for agricultural purposes, while 49.9% is forested. Of the rest of the land, 20.4% is settled (buildings or roads) and the remainder (2%) is non-productive (rivers, glaciers or mountains). In 1996 housing and buildings made up 12.5% of the total area, while transportation infrastructure made up the rest (7.9%). Of the total unproductive area, water (streams and lakes) made up 1.6% of the area. As of 2007, 16% of the total municipal area was undergoing some type of construction.The large municipality stretchs from the shores of Lake Zurich (elevation 408m), over the Zimmerberg-Plateau where the decentralized village of Horgenberg is found (elevation 660m), though the Sihl Valley (Sihltal), to the peak of the Albis chain (elevation 915m). It includes the villages of Horgen, Arn and Horgenberg.
