Walk & Wine - Starts at 20.00 - Rebblühtefäscht & Piglet Race

  • Jun 21, 2013 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This time we will walk from Zurich to Weiningen to enjoy the "Rebblütefäscht".

We will meet at 20.00 p.m. at Zürich HB below the hanging angel and catch the S12 train form 41/42 at 20.14 to arrive at Schlieren at 20.23. From there we will walk to Weiningen - 4.5 km - about 60 minutes. In Weiningen the Rebblühtefäscht (something like "Festival of the wine blossom") with many wineries from the area are waiting for us with crisp wines & delicious food. http://www.rebbluetefaescht.ch/

Around 22.10 we will go to watch the piglet race, and if you bet and win, you will have a new understanding of the German proverb "Schwein haben". To check out the piglets, have a look: http://www.rebbluetefaescht.ch/s%C3%A4ulirennen/renns%C3%A4uli/

To return to Zurich Hauptbahnhof there are Busses every 30 Minutes from Weiningen to Altstetten (e.g. 23.02, 23.32 - the last one at 0.32) where we catch the train S9 (e.g. 23.19) to Zürich (arrival e.g. 23.25)

    Hi Guys,

    This is just to eliminate the confusion. I will lead the 20.00 o`clock group. Any other groups are not part of this "Walk & Wine" organized by me, however of course it will be great & fun to meet you guys on the way or at the wine stands in Weiningen. If you are not joining the main group leaving at 20.00, please update your registration to make room for the guys on the waiting list. Thanks. Best Regards & See you tomorrow

    This really is interesting, but now with the change of the schedule, quite late as I don't live in Zürich. I'm sure you'll have a good time, I give my spot to someone else.

    It sounds like a wonderful event but i wonder if the piglet race is
    not harmful for the pigs?
    I will look into it and might attend with friends . Thank you for organizing this event.
    Thank you

      There is a butcher at the end with a sharp knife so it should be ok.
