Today I was swimming in the Bichelsee again. If you like swimming, this lake is a highlight. Clean and at the moment 23 ° C, just relax in the middle of nature. From Oberwinterthur I ride my e-bike first to Seen and then towards Turbenthal. It is wonderful for cycling along the Töss. In the village of Turbenthal I turn left towards Wil. Then it goes through some farms to the Bichelsee. One of the farms sells fresh eggs from happy chickens. Ha tested it. Are excellent!
From the Bichelsee I bike towards Elgg past the Schauenberg restaurant. From there you have a great view towards Lake Constance. In the townvillage in Oberwinterthur I come after less than 40 minutes. safe again, on a route with little traffic.

Today was Monday and a great day for hiking.
We were almost alone and were able to enjoy the wonderful natural surroundings.
After the parking lot at Tallbachstrasse, the beautiful views into the distance begin.
The Rundblich from the Schauenberg is one of the most beautiful in the Canton of Zurich.
We had our well-deserved lunch break in the Gyrenbad restaurant.
The next way on the tour (although stated by Komoot is almost overgrown) we did it but look for an alternative.

We actually wanted to do the Lägerngrat hike today.
But because of the bridge day (too many people there) we were drawn back to the Tösstal and we had a wonderful hike.
The path to the junction "Brandenfelshöhle" is wide and feasible in all weather conditions, but after the bridge the small path has been redone, it can get very muddy here when it rains and it is sometimes steep down the mountain.
From Wolfsgrueb you have a fantastic view of Lake Zurich and the Alps.
The last hour after forest we are through the Sagenraintobel, the path was redesigned in 2014 with many bridges. It bifurcates at a small weir, we then ran over the Weberegg pond, also a very nice way.

In the first part of Steg zum Hörnli you make 480 vertical meters in 80-90 minutes, but it is so fast because you are always fascinated by the landscape.
Too bad the Hörnli opens the gates again on Monday so we bought our food in the farm shop.
The way back has nice passages, especially the tightrope walk is awesome.

No longer hiked in the Säuliamt.
Easy hike partly along the Freiämtler and Ämtlerwäg.
It was still quite fresh in the morning, and it got pleasantly warm around noon.
For those who want to bathe in the Reuss, you do not have to be afraid there are no sharks.
(We found this hint on a blackboard)

From Stäfa you can take the 950 bus to the Mühleholzli stop, from here the route is very well marked.
There are enough rest areas along the way.
For a stop, I recommend the garden pub from Hasel, a nice place where the storks also feel good.
From Kempraten station you can also go back to Stäfa or Zurich, from here you can only walk through the city.
Those who do not know Rappi should definitely pay a visit to the castle and the old town.
