    Beautiful view on Albis and Zug- and Zurichsee. If the weather is good you can see Rigi and Pilatus from the platform.

At the edge of the forest the dirt road ends and a path leads almost to the beak castle. Shortly before, it crosses the ring road that leads directly to the viewing platform.

    A welcome suprise along the path. Well worth the climb up the wooden steps to the top for a great view over towards Zurich on one side and over towards Zug on the other.
