Tour description

Our holiday walk begins in the midst of the agglomeration at the Kempraten railway station, below the almost completely built up bedroom community of Lenggis. One immediately walks by a few examples of contemporary agglomeration architecture: first Thomas Schmidheiny’s blue brick temple, then one-family houses with post-modern decor, carved wood decor in Black Forest style and unadorned blocks. A short climb 300 meters further on brings one to the Höcklistein vineyard, where grapes for ca. 70,000 bottles of wine are harvested every day, most of them Pinot Noir, RieslingxSylvaner and Räuschling varieties. The gravel trail wanders through the grapes toward Feldbach. Coming upon a large estate, one passes into Canton Zurich and arrives a few steps further at the Schlatt pond. Shortly before Feldbach, one must go north, past a farm and then on to the Schlattstrasse. A few meters further and one follows the Obere Chlausstrasse steeply uphill to the Schwösterrainstrasse. The walk along the hillside enables one to enjoy the view of the lake and the Alps. Then it is just a few steps downhill through the idyllic countryside to the Sageli-Felsenhof restaurant. One then has a choice of continuing over the Höcklistein back to the Kempraten railway station or wandering through Schlatt, thus sparing oneself an excursion to Ballenberg.
