Richterswil is a municipality in the district of Horgen in the canton of Zürich in Switzerland.HistoryRichterswil is first mentioned in 1265 as Richtliswile.During the 17th Century, a series of peasant revolts broke out across Switzerland. Your day by day itinerary now includes Stein am Rhein, Schloss Laufen, Rhine Falls, and other attractions you added. Take a break from the city and head to Restaurant Horn and Fronalpstock. Venture out of the city with trips to Lindt Factory Outlet Kilchberg (in Kilchberg) and Klontalersee (in Klontal). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Burgruine Alt-Waedenswil, get outside with Strandbad Lido, Head underground at Hollgrotten, and make a splash at Alpamare.
