Arboretum

The Arboretum is part of the embankments of Lake Zurich which were inaugurated in 1887 and made the lake accessible from the city. It lies on the north-western corner of the lake and you can reach it from Bürkliplatz in 5 minutes on foot. Originally intended for botanical education, most people prefer to use it as a park and a kind of unofficial lido, even though getting into the water is not so convenient here.

Definitely a good place to go sunbathing or for a relaxed stroll. If you are into botany, the trees and plants growing here are worth a look. Signs under the trees tell you what you are staring at and whether in comes from Japan, the USA or somewhere in Europe. At the lakeside there's a panel to help you identify the peaks of the Alpine panorama visible on clear days. There is a aviary in the park and a kiosk at the west end.
