Announcing a new Meetup for Zurich Hike & Outdoor!

What: Braunwald

When: September 26,[masked]:45 AM

Where:
MAINSTATION
Z?rich Hauptbahnhof

Dear All,

Let?s meet between 7.45 am and 8am to ensure everyone has their tickets under the "big weird angel", next to the ticket office in zurich HB. I am sorry for this "un-christian" hour of meeting up but taking a train 1 hour later would mean that we start hiking around 11am which is too late.

I propose the following itinerary

Zurich Hb: departure- 7.12 AM
arrival Ziegelbrucke: -7.57 am
departure Ziegelbrucke: 8.05 AM
arrival linthal: 8.46 am

In Linthal (645 meters) we need to take the cable-car to Braunwald (1256 meters), walk 10 minutes and take another cable car to Grotzenbuehl (1559 meters). From here we will start our walk. The walk consists of approx. 5 to 5.30 hours and contains following itinerary:

Grotzenbuehl (1559 meters)-> Gumen(1904 meters)-> Ortstockhaus (1772 meters)-> Br?ch Oberstafel (1602 meters)-> Bergetenseeli (1622 meters)-> Rietst?ckli (1848 meters)-> Ober Friteren -> Nussb?el (1262 meters)-> Braunwald (1256 meters). The hike contains approx. 600 meters ascent and 850 meters descent. The hike is considered as a normal hike, i.e. not extremely difficult but also not the easiest of the pack. Anyone who regularly works out should be able to do this. Restaurants are available in Gumen, Ortstockhaus and Nuessbuehl.

To bring along:

? Good atmosphere
? Rainjackets
? Hiking boots
? Water
? Snacks and lunch

I have been told that the cable cars from Linthal to Braunwald goes every half hour i.e. 5.25 am, 5.55 am etc. so we should aim for the 9.25 am cable car and starting our hiking around 10 am and be back in braunwald around 4pm.

The aim would be to take the train back at linthal 17.12 arrival Ziegelbrucke (17.55). Departure Ziegelbrucke (18.01)-> arrival Zurich HB 18.47 or an earlier one if possible.

Looking forward to meet you,

Kind regards
