I could easily find the time tables for the lake Zurich boat rides. Just correct me if I'm wrong. Landesmuseum and burkiplatz are the places from where the boats depart, right? And if I prefer a ride that's lesser than 2 hours, is rapperswil the best destination? Or somewhere else?

Also, where do I find the time tables for the limmat cruise rides? I'd prefer a short or medium round trip. And which is the place from the limmats cruises depart?

Hi Jayy123,

You can find a schedule for the Limmat river boats and Lake Zurich cruises here.

The river trip is about 1 hour as a round-trip from the Landesmuseum (near the main train station in Zurich to Lake Zurich and back

The lake cruises depart from Bürklipatz yes. The cruises are 1.5 to 7 hours in length for a round-trip. A trip to Rapperswil is about 4 hours round-trip. A link to all schedules can be found on the page linked above.
