Türlersee, CH

Türlersee is a lake in the district of Affoltern, Canton of Zurich, Switzerland. It lies on the border of the municipalities of Aeugst and Hausen am Albis at an elevation of 643 m. The lake has an area of 0.49 km² (maximum length 1.4 km, width 500 m) and is listed in the Inventory of Landscapes and Natural Monuments of National Importance.


With a trail around the lake and through the surrounding woods, the lake is a popular recreation area in the Zürich Region. A lido and other beaches and walkways along the lake offer natural bathing facilities for adults and children. A campground with lake access, boat rentals and a restaurant round off the offerings.

Swimming Fun Guaranteed

The lido lies directly next to the campsite, and immediately gives rise to a vacation feeling. Relaxing on the grassy area, you can leave the hustle and bustle of the city far behind you. There are several floats to swim to in the lake, and boats are also available for hire. In addition, the youngest guests can let off steam in the playground.

Fishing and Fish Specialty

At the Türlersee, you can fish from the shore, or –with a fishing license – also from a boat. The lake is inhabited by, among others, pike and whitefish. Further information about fishing in the Türlersee can be found on the website of the Türlersee Fishing Association. And those who despite great patience do not manage to catch anything can tuck into tasty “Fischknüsperli” (battered fish) in the campsite restaurant.
