New Meetup: Oeschinensee

Announcing a new Meetup for Zurich Hike & Outdoor!

What: Oeschinensee

When: October 18,[masked]:15 AM

Z?rich Hauptbahnhof

Dear All,

I have had a look at the weather forecast and in the Northern part of Switzerland they mainly predict rain for the weekend. For Kanderstegg they predicted good weather for sunday (=hopefully this is true!).

I'd like to propose following itinerary. We take the train to Kandersteg. From Kandersteg (1200 meters) we walk to Oeschinensee (beautiful blue lake) at 1578 meters which is a gentle 1 hour and 30 minutes walk. After a coffee/lunch at the lake we then follow a 3 hour track Heuberg- Oberbergli-Unterberggli which arrives back at Oeschinensee. From Oeschinensee walking back to the Station is 45 minutes (or faster by cable-car): Total hike approx. 5 hours. The hike is NOT difficult and can be done by most people.

I suggest to meet " under the big weird angel" (next to Zurich HB ticket counter) at 7.15- 7.20 am to take the 7.32 am train

departure Zurich 7.32 am
arrival Bern - 8.29 am
departure Bern- 8.40am
arrival Kandersteg- 9u40 am

Things to bring along:

* sturdy shoes
* rain protective gear (=and shoes)
* sunscreen
* humour/smile
* snacks/food/drinks

Please note that we are in the mountains and that weather can change rapidly.

The idea would be to take a train back around at 4.25pm train arriving in Zurich at 6.50pm. Obviously if the weather is good and the Group would like to stay longer, we can adapt this schedule,

Hope to see you,

Kind regards
