Lake Zurich

The bent, almost banana-shaped Lake Zurich is surrounded by the hills of Albis and Zimmerberg on the southern side, and the hills of Pfannenstiel on the north.

Lake Zürich consists of the Linth River, rising on the Glarus alpine glaciers, which was transferred to Lake Walen via the Escher canal, completed in 1811, from where its waters pass through the Linth channel east of Lake Zürich (completed in 1816).

Lake Zurich

The Zürich lake’s water runs off the lake at its north-western end (Quaibrücke) and crosses through the town of Zürich, but then it is known as the Limmat outflow. At 3,614 meters above sea level, the peak of the drainage basin of the lake is the Tödi.
