Granted, apart from the detour to the small Bachtelweiher this tour is not right on the water. But you have from the lookout tower on the summit of the Bachtels an incomparable view of the surrounding lakes: To the south, the elongated Lake Zurich and northeast, you can admire the Pfäffikersee and the Greifensee in the hills of the Zurich Oberland.From Rüti ZH station, take the S26 to Gibswil station, the starting point of your hike. From the small community our tour takes you over wide, lush meadows gently uphill in the direction of Bachtel. On the way it goes past farms and the picturesque Bachtelweiher. Immediately afterwards you walk a short distance through a forest before you finally reach the summit.Here you will find the lookout tower and a cozy restaurant. After enjoying the view over the Zurich Oberland and having dined in the restaurant, you will hike down alpine meadows with magnificent foresight. The aim of the tour is the station Wald, where you can jump back into the S26 to Rüti.
