“I DON’T WANT TO BE THE ONE
WHO JUST SAYS, LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL.
I WANT TO BE THE ONE
WHO ALSO FEELS AND LIVES IT”

This is the Limmat river in Zurich, Switzerland
The Limmat is a river in Switzerland. The river commences at the outfall of Lake Zurich, in the centre of the city of Zurich. From Zurich it flows in a northwesterly direction, after 35 km reaching the river Aare. The confluence is located north of the small town of Brugg and shortly after the mouth of the Reuss.
The main towns along the Limmat Valley downstream of Zurich are Dietikon, Wettingen, and Baden. Its main tributaries are the Linth, via Lake Zurich, the Sihl, in Zurich, and the Reppisch, in Dietikon.
The hydronym is first attested in the 8th century, as Lindimacus. It is of Gaulish origin, from *lindo- “lake” and *magos “plain”, and was thus presumably in origin the name of the plain formed by the Linth river.
