Hi everyone,

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

Duration 0:44

Estimated Return

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:
- Water
- Rain protection (just in case)
- Picknick

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.
