Zurich Lake is situated north of the Glarus Alps in the altitude of 406 m. It is located about 15 km southeast of the city of Zurich in Switzerland . Zurich Lake lies in an old glacial basin and has the shape of a banana. Fishing and transport is well-developed on the lake.


The biggest of the three lake affluents is the Linth river. Zurich Lake stretches on an area of more than 88 km2. It is about 28 km long and the maximum depth is 136 m. There are two islands on the lake – the inhabited Ufenau and Lützelau with a nature reservation. In summer months Zurich Lake is a popular destination, which offers suitable conditions for water sports. In the narrowest point of the lake, between the cities of Pfäffikon and Rapperswil there is a 1-km long artificial dam Seedamm von Rapperswil.
