Switzerland: Hike

The Uppsala University Switzerland Alumni Chapter are happy to invite you for a lovely autumn hike from Walenstadt to Quinten, alongside of Walensee, on Saturday the 20th of October. Although the somewhat short notice, we hope that as many as possible of you would like to join. You are also welcome to bring a friend or partner.

More details can be found in the following and in the attached pdf.

Elevation: +535m, -535m

Length: 10km

Max number of participants: -

Equipment: Extra clothes (rainjacket depending on weather), money for lunch and ferry.

Transport: We meet in Zürich HB platform 7 at 10:00 taking the 10:12 train towards Chur. At 11:12 we will be in Walenstadt to begin our hike.

For participants starting from Geneva it is possible to take the 07:15 train from Platform 3 to Zürich.

Brief description of the tour:

This is a medium tour taking about 3.5 hours walking easy paths from Walenstadt to Quinten. We will be walking on the northside of Walensee beneath the impressive south facing cliffs of the Churfirsten which means this will be a comparably warm weather autumn hike. The hike will offer stunning views in a very beautiful part of Switzerland.

At Quinten we will have a reserved table at the restaurant Seehus for late lunch (about 15:00). We could take the ferry back 16:00 to trainstation in Murg where we might catch the 16:16 train for a one hour trip back to Zürich.
