Zurich Hiking Trails

Five family theme hikes

Enjoy the exercise in the middle of nature with your children and solve various puzzles on the way. «Hiky», the mascot, accompanies you on the signposted family hikes and challenges you with different riddles.

From Hombrechtikon to the botanical garden and further on to Grüningen you will meet some of the largest trees on earth.
Geography: From Pfannenstiel mountain through the Meilen ravine and further on to the village of Meilen, you will find out why there is more snow on the mountains than in the valleys.
Puzzle: Puzzle as much as you like on your way from Seuzach to Mörsburg and further on to Rickenbach or the other way round.
Orientation: From Hausen to Türlersee and further on to Mettmenstetten (or the other way round) you will get advice about orientation in terrain.
Meet different animals on your hike to the zoo.
