In the historic town of Rapperswil, the traditional Sorell Hotel Speer is in a prime location. The "Speer" is a great place where people can meet up and a starting point for trips out into the Greater Zurich area or the nearby Old Town. The Sorell Hotel Speer is in the centre of Rapperswil, just opposite the railway station and the lake promenade. Rapperswil is well-connected by road and easily accessible by car or train. It is only 35 minutes away from the city of Zurich or its airport. The hotel's mountain bikes are the ideal way to discover Rapperswil and the surrounding area under your own steam.

The hotel is within walking distance from the lake where the fireworks usually take place; 2-10 minutes depending on where exactly you want to go.
