Seefeld is the name of the district on the eastern shore of the lake. Over the past decade it has become an incredibly popular area to live in - which results in very high rents. There are some worries that this is driving away the area’s original inhabitants and spoiling its charm. With all the new residents in the area, scores of trendy bars and restaurants have opened in Seefeld. But of course the majorattraction here is the lake: on the lake side there is a promenade with boat rentals, two swimming spots and the ever (over-)crowded Blatterwiese, where you can sunbathe on the grass, barbecue on two electric grills or dine in one of the outdoor restaurants. Don’t leave Zurich without having taken in the lake side.
