About Limmat River

Limmat is a river flowing in Switzerland, which originates at the outfall of Lake Zurich located at the Zurich City center. From Zurich, Limmat flows in the northwest direction and after flowing for 35 km, reaches to river Aare. This confluence is located close to the Brugg town. The major towns alongside the Limmat Valley downstream are Wettingen, Dietikon, and Baden etc. The major tributaries of the Limmat are Linth through Lake Zurich, Sihl in Zurich, and Reppisch at Dietikon. At one time, the Limmat was a key navigation route. However, now Limmat is navigable on small craft only. There are many hydroelectric power plants incorporated alongside the river with boatlifts. This route is now mostly taken by the tourists coming to visit Zurich City. There are many prehistoric pile dwellings around Zurichsee, which are situated on the swamp between Zürichsee and the Limmat around Sechseläutzenplatz at many small islands. These are believed to protect against flooding by Linth and Jona.
