Wyland–Downtown

Vineyards, fields, timber-framed houses to set the mood, then through the wide foreland of the Thur. Winterthur awaits experimentation fans with the interactive Technorama. Green recreational areas only hint at the urban desert around Zurich.
Tourist turmoil in Stein am Rhein followed by carefully laid-out vineyards, wide cultivated fields and stately timber-framed houses in Stammheim. The Thur flows slowly though a shallow dip, but the wide foreshore attests to flooding misery.

A regional train buzzes through the country towards the nearest town, in Oberwinterthur the interactive Technorama invites experimentation. Winterthur attracts with its trendy art scene and old town, choices are many, hardly fewer than in Zurich. In Kemptthal the aroma of Maggi soup has long evaporated, now the motorway affects ears and noses. Following the railway, your eyes come across the concrete cube of Effretikon railway station.

The route leads through a woodland oasis with timber-framed houses in Wangen’s old village centre. Cycling paths in a green recreational area only hint at the urban desert, town suburbs, whether Dübendorf or Schwamendingen have a village feel. After the large building complexes of Irchel, the modern study centre, immersion in the hubbub of the lively city.
