Pfannenstiel Weg

The fantastic hike across the Pfannenstiel ridge offers the best views of Lake Zurich. Starting in village of Forch, this varied path leads through Meilem ravine to the old centre of the town of Meilen.
The route leads from the station forch to the forest. Here a panoramic view opens op over the Greifensee into the Zurich Oberland.

If you want to enjoy the 360 degree view above the treetops, climb up the 30-m high lookout tower. The roads to Toggwil climb very gradually through the woods. When you leave the woods, you'll be rewarded with an open view of Lake Zurich, and from Toggwil the path through the Meilen Tobel is very varied.

It snakes by many boulders and takes you to the ruins of the Friedberg fortress on the left, after passing a large waterfall. The delta of the Tobelbach is the site of the old center of Meilen with its attractive church, worth a visit.
