Lakeside Living

Authentic Swiss lakeside living in a modern design, Alex is located on the water’s edge of Lake Zurich, set against the spectacular backdrop of the Swiss Alps and just a short drive from downtown Zurich, Zug and the mountain regions.

In summer, no trip to Zurich is complete without trying some invigorating or relaxing water sports on your doorstep from our own pier or aboard Alex’s motorboat.

Behind the magnificent Alpine view, water lovers can swim in the crystal clear water of Lake Zurich. The lake offers excellent conditions for epic waterski & wakeboard action, vitalizing stand-up paddling voyages, energising rowing exercises and fascinating fishing experiences. All available to book at ALEX.

Anyone who prefers to enjoy a leisurely boat trip to explore the beautiful lakeshore scenery, can board the ALEX motorboat for a relaxing private cruise or for a quick and comfortable transfer to the city.
Our Guest Service can help to arrange boat tours and equipment hire. Please contact us on email [email protected] .
