Wildnisweg Sihlwald

The hiking trail leads you through the Wilderness park Zurich Sihlwald. After a steep ascent you reach Albishorn. Passing primeval forest structures, you finally arrive at the visitor's centre. The end is Horgen on the lake of Zurich.
This trail leads you through the Wilderness park Zurich Sihlwald, the largest natural beech woodland in the central part of Switzerland. After an initial steep ascent, you reach Albishorn with a view of the whole lake of Zurich and the mountain panorama.

Here there is a cosy restaurant offering refreshment. The trail now enters the core zone of the park. After passing the Albisweiher, a pond where in spring the grass frogs croak loudly, you will hear birds twittering, the knocking of the woodpecker and see primeval forest structures before reaching the bottom of the Sihl valley.

Here the visitor centre offers information and exciting exhibitions. The hiking trail continues along the forest experience path with its motto: «discover the forest with all your senses»! You now descend in the direction of the lake to Horgen railway station or the boat landing stage.
