Weekend is here and I am back in Switzerland. Mountains were calling and I had to go 😃 Yesterday's destination was Chäserrugg. I know Walensee very well but I needed a new perspective from the 2262m high peak. If you don't like skiing, it's a lovely place for a walk in winter wonderland 😎
Not far from Zurich, high above the beautiful Lake Walen, is a wonderful nature paradise. Here in the Chäserrugg region, everyone can find a fun way of getting some exercise, whatever their physical condition. And with the summit restaurant designed by Herzog & de Meuron, an architectural highlight is also awaiting visitors from near and far. Various mountain railways and cableways, including a new 10-seater gondola, swiftly transport visitors up to the heights, where they can enjoy a breathtaking panorama. From here, they are treated to unrestricted views of six countries and around 500 mountain peaks.
In winter, the Chäserrugg is a popular ski area. Besides eight ski pistes of varying levels of difficulty, some beautiful hiking routes provide variation. Or you can race down to the valley on a toboggan and enjoy the perfectly prepared pistes and spectacular views along the way.
Due to the constantly changing Covid 19 measures, it is currently impossible to keep all opening hours on the zuerich.com website up to date. Therefore, please check the website of the respective businesses or institutions before visiting a restaurant, shopping or museum.
We thank you for your understanding and wish you a pleasant stay in Zurich.
