The Zürichsee-Weg (Lake Zurich trail): Stage 1 Zurich to Adliswil Map

The Zürichsee-Weg (Lake Zurich trail) is a wonderful way to explore Zurich’s glistening lake and its surrounding woodlands, streams, marshlands and historical gems. Come across castles with mountain backdrops, elegant villas with sandy beaches to take a dip and medieval villages to welcome you in for a pitstop on this epic 10 stage circular hike.


The beginning stage is a gentle ease into the long distance route. The 9km from Zurich Manegg to Adliswil takes you along the gently winding river, all the way to Adliswil where you should take the opportunity to ride the cable car up to the Felsenegg mountain lookout point.
