Hi there....I am back :)
Taking advantage that this weekend will NOT be raining for a change, I want to discover a new lake in Switzerland where I have not been before: the Baldeggersee in the Kanton of Luzern and just a bit more than an hour from Zürich.
The route seems to be good marked, going up around and down 320m and with a comfortable 3:45hrs time:
Route: Hitzkirch Dorf 498m - Müswangen 787m (1 Std.) - Sulzerkreuz 812m - Lindenberg - Horben AG 818m (1Std.) - Lieli LU 650m (1 Std.) - Schloss Heidegg (25 min.) - Hitzkirch Dorf (20 min.)
Here the train schedule:
If you miss us on the meeting point, please go directly to the train and catch us there. If you don't find us, give me a call - please don't sent SMS "W r u?" as I am very slow in typing back a whole explanation on where we are - a call is quicker.
To bring along:
- Water (min. 1 Liter)
- Food (Cookies, Snacks, Sandwiches, Grilled Chicken, etc)
- Sun and Rain protection (creme, glasses, jackets)
- Extra clothes (after the hike)
- Steady shoes (sneakers - or in UK English "trainers", are on your own judgment)
- Hiking Poles are recommended
- Train Ticket to and from Hitzkirch Dorf
I hold the right to cancel the trip due to weather or illness reasons. I'll do my best to let you know as soon as possible. Please look into the website and email for any changes before you head to the meeting point, or at least the night before the event.
Ok, that said, lets go out into the Swiss Alps and enjoy the mountains!
Hope to see you then!
