Once up on the top this is an easy walk and very rewarding. After
leaving the train you shouldn't miss the visit to the viewing platforms.
The walk along the rim of the Albis chain to Felsenegg and further on will
every now and then allow views either to Zuerich, the lake or into
the mountain range of the Innerschweiz. Distributed along the way there
are about six Restaurants.
At Felsenegg (of course with a Restaurant
again) there is a cable car down to Adliswil, where you can take a train
back to Zuerich (Sihltalbahn). There is also a well kept walking path down
On Buchenegg there are two Restaurants. Chnusperhuesli
(former Naefenhaus) is for you, if you love fairy tales. The "stable
of happy chicken" is a lovely made up Restaurant decorated with
witches in ceiling beams, among hundreds of (straw) chicken, in a
stable-like wood house adjacent to the main building.
If you prefer to climb up to Uetliberg: there's a well kept walking path
from Triemli or Albisguetli Tram stop. If you prefer to use the private
car, a good starting point is Buchenegg or Albis Pass (an additional
The track from Uetliberg to Buchenegg is a planet's walk. There are signs
explaining our planet system (scaled) and you get an idea of the giant
distances in the universe and the sizes of the planets.
There are many options for walks of different length and adjustable to
many preferences. For a breathtaking view walk the 30 Minutes from Albispass
(Bus) to Hochwacht and climb the tall watchtower. There is a shelter,
tables and a fireplace nearby.
An additional 50 Minutes
would get you to Albishorn (see walk Baar-Kappel).
On that track you'll pass the knoll with Ruine "Schnabelburg"
atop (steep narrow track). Schnabelburg in mediaeval times was a check
point for the mule track between Zuerich (by Langnau) and Zug.
After a while there follows steep ascent to Buerglenstutz, the highest
point on the Albis mountain chain (915 m).
In nearby Langnau there is a nature park with a variety
of animals and enjoyable walking tracks as well.
