Easy Last Minute Trip - Le colline fortificate di Bellinzona

According to the weather forecast, it's going to be much better in Ticino than in North Switzerland. To change a bit I suggest the following trip:


We will take the train of 8.09 to Bellinzona, arriving 10.23 (direct train).

If you arrive a bit late just jump in the train!


After the hike, let's visit a bit around. No scheduled return time!


Difficulty: Easy, 7km, 500m up and down, 3 hours


Do not forget:

- Water

- Sun Protection and just in case wind protection as well

- Food (Sandwich, Cookies, Chocolate, etc)

- Your ticket

- A big smile!

    @Guillaume: Are you still going if the forecast does not improve? I spent some time today to look for the alternative plans for the Alpine camping we were supposed to do this WE and the only rain free window seems to be tomorrow morning in Andermatt :/ Rain in Bellinzona is expected on the Sunday afternoon so the hike might go well, but exploring part rather not :/

    In case it still goes... Is the BBQ planned as well or no this time? Plus: anybody keen to join the ride from Zürich instead of the train?

      You're right, meteosuisse improved the forecast and it seems to be the only place with some sun! Great job!

      MeteoSuisse is still stable, 50-80% of sun and no rain :) But believing in 10 hours of sun is a bit optimistic ^.^
