We caught the 13.30 boat from the Buerkliplatz ship station in Zurich.
We purchased our tickets here, from a machine (easy to use - Multi lingual instructions) - The 9-Uhr (9 hour) pass, which on a Sunday is valid for the whole day! This cost CHF 24.00, and covers train and bus/tram travel too - Great value, especially as Sonya and I visited Uetliberg later that day, before returning to Zurich
This service is very popular - get to the quay early if there is a group of you, if you want to sit together outside.
The boat that we travelled on had a dining room and bar. It was one of the more modern boats. There are still two of the old Paddle steamers in use - we spotted one during our journey (pic 3)
During our journey, we enjoyed sandwiches and a drink. A couple sitting near to us enjoyed a couple of glasses of Prosecco.
The boat called at a few places en route, before we arrived in Rapperswil, about one hour and 45 minutes after departing Zurich.
We returned to Zurich by train - quicker, but less scenic!

This train is commuting from Rapperswil every .52 mins after an hour passing through the lakeside and arriving in Zurich Main Railway Station in 40 minutes. This line is going further to Winterthur or the other way round.

Take a cruise and your time to discover the Zürich Lake. We took the MS Linth for a 1h45 trip from Zürich Bürkliplatz to Rapperswil harbor. A lovely and gourmet cruise but with an happy end... not as in Titanic... we all survived but one camera doesn't!
The local cruising company owns also 2 steam paddle boats the DS Stadt Zürich and the DS Stadt Zürich.
