Zurich Panorama Ridge Day Trip Details
Zürich Panorama Ridge Hike – Itinerary
We meet at Zürich’s train station – under the “Meeting Point” sign at the Big Clock.
After meeting your guide and reviewing the day’s activity, we catch a local tram to the starting point of the hike – the 870 m/ 2850 ft home mountain of the city of Zurich. From there we will see an imposing view over the city below.We then take a quick detour to the observation deck at the restaurant Uto Kulm for some more imposing views over the city, the lake and the Central swiss Alps.
Afterward we set off at a gentle pace along the walking trail, following the Path of the Planets noticing interesting facts about the solar system along the way.
Each meter you walk corresponds to a distance of 1 million kilometers, allowing you to travel at twice the speed of sound as you walk past the planets. It is a reminder to us of the vastness of our universe but the beautiful setting in nature also reminds us to focus our actions on the preservation of this place we called Earth.
Following the edge of a forest and crossing meadows and farmland, the route takes you high above Lake Zürich spreading out below you as you walk, picturesque views accompanying you most the way.
As we go, take time out to enjoy the peace and tranquility which seems a world away from the hustle of the stock market and financial dealings that take place down below in the city of Zürich.
We finally reach the end point of the hike and reward yourself with refreshments on a terrace with a magnificent view before catching the only cable car to be found in the canton of Zürich.
At the base station, it is a short walk to the local train station for a short ride back to Zürich’s main train station
