Announcing a new Meetup for Zurich Hike & Outdoor!
What: Bachtel Tower - Close and pretty
When: October 31,[masked]:30 AM
in front of Ticket counter, underneath the big weird angel hanging from the ceiling
As the winter is slowly making its way, I would like to enjoy the fall of the leaves by doing a "comfortable" hike and visit the Bachtel Tower located in Kanton Z?rich.
For those that want to go for a more adventurous hike, I recommend to check out Patrick's hike on here
There are many variants to go up the Bachter Tower. I chose the one described under this link
, which has some waterfalls, forests, open fields and, the best of all, a restaurant at the top for us to strengthen with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee.
The hike should not be too difficult (disclaimer: I didn't say easy either): about 3:30 hrs hike and about 360meter going up and down.
The train schedule is the following:
Z?rich HB ab 11:40 Gleis 23/24 S15
R?ti ZH an 12:08 2
R?ti ZH ab 12:11 3 S26
Gibswil an 12:24
Gibswil ab 16:33 S26 (every hour)
R?ti ZH an 16:48
R?ti ZH ab 16:51 1 S15
Z?rich HB an 17:20 21/22
This time I will ask for everyone to buy their own ticket. Recommended is the "9 O'clock pass" for around CHF 11.
Else to bring along:
- Rain protection (just in case)
I hope we get to see any of the fall spirit on the way.
ANNEX: after arriving in Z?rich HB, there are some interesting concerts:
a) a choir at the Fraum?nster at 17:30 (we might need to hurry to get there on time) where our friend Aaron Bingham is singing, or
b) piano concert (Beethoven&Schumann) in Schaffhausen that starts at 19:30 (free entry), where a good friend of mine from Chile is playing. I will only go there if someone else is interested joining me.
