I had a short stopover for lunch in Rapperswil enroute to Maenfeld and Liechtenstein, but I chose to forgo the lunch in favour of a more extended look at this lovely little town. As it happened we were lucky to score some extra time as the air con on the bus was out of order and it was 33 deg. C. that day. So we had to wait for a replacement bus to be brought from Zurich. The extra time worked for me!

Rapperswil is known for its many rose gardens and its location on the shore of beautiful Lake Zuerich. It has quite an interesting history as well and is lovely for a day visit. The town is extremly walkable and features many lovely little shops and restaurants etc. When in Zuerich, this is a must. It is easily reached by boat from Zuerich. The boats leave at regular intervals most days.
