Beautiful lake, good Uetliberg views....now what?

Hi forums friends, any exciting suggestions for Zurich life enrichment?

All good so far but want to experience more of what this seemingly beautiful place has to offer. From small back street dining gems, outdoor spectacular, activities, theatre - preferably in English but hey ho - to all else I haven't thought of yet!

Look forward to sharing ideas.

As you apparently like the mountains above Zürich, you might try the Felsenegg http://www.laf.ch/home.html

or the Albis
A) S4 to Langnau-Gattikon
B) http://online.fahrplan.zvv.ch/bin/qu...t&searchMode=S

I personally prefer the lakeshore on both sides, with places like

the China-Garden
http://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/ted/de/i...inagarten.html

or the Sukkulenten-Sammlung http://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/sukkulenten

and of course lots of museums

If you enjoy swimming, I'd suggest you try a dip in one of Zurich's famed Flussbadis (river baths/swimming areas). The Flussbadis at Oberer Letten and Unterer Letten are open until September 9th, so go soon if you get a chance!

The thermal bads (hot springs) are really nice, here, too -- especially in the cooler weather. Even now, the evenings are usually cool enough to enjoy them.

Thanks very much for your suggestions - exactly the sort of thing I'm looking to find out.

I guess I'll search the forum and see what else I can find. I'm sure I'm not the only person to have asked that question.
Thanks again.

Thanks. Are the thermal baths the cordoned off areas around the lake or some where else?

http://www.thermalbad-zuerich.ch/ This should help x Get a Roman bath circuit- its exhilarating- they aren't free though. Every neighborhood along the lake has its own Swimming area called a Badi. You get yourself either a season pass May-Oct or then pay from 3.50Chf upwards (at some) to get access to them. There are plenty of free areas too, grassy with open barbecue pits so you can gather some friends and have a nice day out( sunny days are limited now)- make the most of them. The China Garden area grounds are free and a great place to meet people too.
There's this link too.

Should be useful.
Enjoy xx
