The pier. A beautiful sight.
We took the short round trip
The boat ride usually cost chf 8.5, but is free for those with Zurich Card. Yes, my friends want to make full use of the Zurich card. I wanted to just another walking tour but it was two against one.
The whole boat ride took around 1.5 hours. There is indoor and outdoor sitting and also a small restaurant.
I think I choose the wrong timing to take the boat so I was not enjoying much of it.
Firstly, it is winter so is very cold and windy to sit outside. It is hard to get a good shot or enjoy the scenery without shivering.
Secondly, we should not take the night cruise. It is so dark, we can't see the alps. We can only see lights and sometimes there was not much light.
The best timing to enjoy this boat ride should be somewhere around sunset where you can still see the alps and also enjoy the beautiful sunset and maybe a bit of the night lights.
