Meetup Description: Hi everyone,

For those that think sunshine will never appear... I have good news.... Sun will shine once again on (of course) Sunday (dah).

So we will have again two options: Jemma's and mine. No.... we are not competing for hikers, as both are great hikes!

Since there is still much snow on the high mountain, and I miss being in the mountains, I chose a place to of lower altitude, great views and nice lakes. Here goes my proposal of the hike: hike from Immensee on the Zugersee to Vitznau on the Vierwaldst?dtesee.

I try that everyone can enjoy, even those that are unexperienced in hiking. Hence, this hike, allthough not necessarely the shortest hike, has many drop-out places. We will also have great view on the lakes, Pilatus and Rigi Kulm, if that is of a motivation!

The route has a total of 4.45 hours walking time, going up 660 m, and going down 680 m. Specifically this is:

Immensee 460 m - Hohle Gasse 480 m - Giesenbach 522 m (0.20 h) - Gesslerburg 480 m (0.20 h) - Rest.Alpenhof 557 m (0.20 h) - Landschi - Chl?sterli 525 m (0.20 h) - Greppen (0.20 h) - Weggis Oberdorf (0.35 h) - Gribsch 540 m (0.15 h) - Bodenberg 660 m (0.30 h) - Abzweigung L?tzelau 600 m (0.30 h) - Ohrenpfad 771 m (0.25 h) - Oberwilen 620 m (0.20 h) - Vitznau 435 m (0.30 h).

There is a more detailed description (in german) at

In Vitznau we can decide whether we want to take the boat back to Luzern and then back to Z?rich, or we take the groud transportation back (also subject to boat ride schedule, which departs from Vitznau every xx:48 and takes 1 hour to Luzern).

We will meet at 9:45 am in ZH HB under the big weird angel.
The train schedule is as follows:

Z?rich HB ab 10:09 4 IR 2267 InterRegio,
Arth-Goldau an 10:46 4

Arth-Goldau ab 11:21 6 S[masked] S-Bahn, Linie 3
Immensee an 11:28 2

Duration: 1:19; f?hrt t?glich

Note that we will have about 35 minutes of coffee break in Arth Goldau...yeah!

To bring along:
- Sun/Wind/Rain Protection (glasses, raincoat, creme, etc).
- Hiking shoes (no heels ... see picture!)
- To eat and drink (1 liter minimum) (we will have a picknick somewhere on the way)
- Poles if you have
- One way trip to Immensee. (Way return will be decided on the way).

So that is it.... hope you can join either Jemma's or my hike!

Best wishes,
