Biking and inline skating along Lake Greifensee are two popular activities with locals and tourists. The town Greifensee is also situated by the lake. It is a popular destination due to the historic part complete with a worth-seeing castle and a unique church, Gallus Chapel, which has the shape of a triangle to fit into the city walls. The nearby Lake Zürich has a surface area around ten times larger than Lake Greifensee, and offers beautiful views on the surrounding mountainous area. If you decide to go for a swim in the lake, do not expect warm water, even during hot summer days -- the water in the lake is always quite cold.

The Old Town, the Musuem of Fine Arts, Kunsthaus Zürich, and the popular riverside shopping street Limmatquai are just some examples of things to do and see in this vivid city.
