Before the Seedamm was built in 1873 over Lake Zurich between Rapperswil and Pfäffikon, a wide boardwalk led across the lake for many years. In 2001 it was decided to partially rebuild the footbridge. Since then, hikers and cyclists from Rapperswil can follow the old course of the footbridge and walk or cycle with a wonderful view to the peninsula Hurden. Our tour then continues on the lakeshore to Pfäffikon, where you can take the train back to Zurich.Take the S15 from Zurich to the starting point Rapperswil. From the train station it goes to the marina and right on the boardwalk. The bridge is made entirely of oak wood and, with a total length of 841 meters, is the longest wooden bridge in Switzerland. Away from the constant traffic of the Seedamm you can enjoy a fantastic view across the lake to the mountain ranges of the Alps.On the shore of the peninsula Hurden ends the wooden pier. Here you cross the Seedammstraße and then stroll along the shores of Lake Zurich to Pfäffikon station. From here you can take various train lines back to Zurich or to the starting point Rapperswil.
