the largest city in Switzerland



Burkliplatz is the departing point for boat cruises on the Zurich lake. The trips can be small or large from a duration perspective.

The short ones take up to 2 hours and cost 9.80 CHF. The longer ones make a full tour of the lake and can take several hours to complete.

There are also smaller boats available that go instead via Limmat towards the Landesmuseum end-point.

The ZSG shipyard employs about 80 permanent employees and during the main summer season an additional temporary workforce to sustain its additional operations.

Near the Burkliplatz piers one can find a floral "clock", a tram station and little shops with different post-cards and souvenirs.
