Limmat River


Limmat is a 36 km long river in Switzerland, flowing from Lake Zurich and flowing into the Aare river

It divides Zurich into two parts - the Old City on the right bank and the Small City on the left. Limmat is a popular place for active recreation of the Swiss. Here you can ride on a boat or sailboat.

The right bank of Limmat is a historical center with numerous architectural monuments, narrow streets and old houses. Its axis forms the street Niederdorf with a pedestrian zone, objects of entertainment and recreation. At the embankment of the Limmat River, high steeples and towers make you look up. Large watches look at people from the church of St. Peter, which is located near the waterfront.

Zurich is rich in vibrant cultural events. There are over 50 museums, more than 100 galleries, and every year more and more new ones are opened. You can really walk around the city forever. Numerous figured fountains (of which you can drink without fear) with colorful sculptural compositions, a characteristic feature of Switzerland, delight the tourists. Some of them are memorials.
