Spring Hike: Hirzel to Horgen

Our first hilke of the year - Let's start with a favourite from late last summer!

The idea is to get the bus (15 minutes on the 150) from Horgen to Hirzel and walk back to Horgen over the Zimmerberg with its views of Rigi and Pilatus and over Horgenberg with views of Zurisee and back to Horgen via the Aacbach Falls. We plan to go for a drink by Lake Zurisee afterwards.

We meet on the bus 150 leaving at 1.40 at Horgen Station (NB: This is Not Horgenoberdorf station). The route should be around 10 to 11 km with a slight climb to Zimmerberg and a descent by the Aabach waterfalls which includes a number of steep steps. It should take approximately 2.5 to 3 hours without breaks.

Please bring any snacks and water and the usual sunscreen, waterproofs, sensible footwear. Of course we're hoping for a perfect spring day!

    Hi Carrie, thanks!!!! It was a great walk through some very pretty villages and the cafe at the end was perfect. Thanks to Burkhard for paying for the cake for us all. It was a perfect size group with keen walkers out for a Sunday stroll :) I give it 5 stars

    Hello Everybody,
    As a reminder, bus 150 leaves Horgen Bahnhof at 1.40 on Sunday - you will need a ticket to Hirzel, Kirche. I'm hoping we get a clear view of Rigi and Pilatus from Zimmerberg - I'm looking forward to the walk! See you then Carrie ([masked] )
