Impressions from my "home lake"
Since I can think, I've visited the Pfaeffikersee every year. Mostly in summer to go swimming in the swimming area of Auslikon. I love this small lake, whose circumference is 9 kilometres. But also in Winter the lake can be wonderful. In 2006, we could witness a rare opportunity: Our lake was so deeply frozen that people were allowed to step on it. Before, this was possible in 2002 and 1991.

Where does this reed
come from? :-)
|Lot of people on the way!||They even played "Alphorn"|
But even before people could officially walk on the lake, there were some beautiful things to see...

Here it was still warmer:
