When Sun 15. May 2022 10:00 - 17:35 
Pfannestiel Hike 

Join us for the best hike the Canton of Zurich can offer you


We will start the hike at the shores of Lake Zurich in Küsnacht, walk uphill and pass by Alexanderstein (a big fat old stone that came rolling down from the mountains during the Ice Ages), visit the Wulp castle ruins (built during the Middle Ages and destroyed somewhere in between then and now), admire some cute waterfalls while walking steadily uphill towards Pfannenstiel, which is almost as high as Uetliberg. Up there, we will enjoy a panoramic view over Zurich's three biggest lakes Zürichsee, Greifensee and Pfäffikersee, and will have a small break and eat our picnic. Finally we go down towards Meilen, following the beautiful Meilemer Tobel, pass by yet another medieval ruin, the Burgruine Friedberg. From Meilen, we sail back to Zurich on a ZSG boat, where we will be able to enjoy a beer during our ride.

The whole event (hike, breaks, boat, etc.) will last between 5 and 6 hours, depending on our pace. We will be back at Zurich Bellevue at 17h35.

You will receive an email with all information about the exact meeting point and the time. In case of rain, we will postpone the event to another date.

Please bring:

  • Picnic, snacks, and drinks for yourself. We recommend taking a bottle of water with you. 
  • Hiking shoes are not required, but the path can be a bit muddy in some places.
