Our Swiss friends took us on this hike. It is a relatively easy hike uphill even for kids. The top has a rewarding view of the countryside, and a tower viewing platform to get views of all the alps in the distance. At the top there was a fire pit with a grill, and our friends brought sausages to roast. It was a wonderful day!

It's just a nice Place to go an spend time with your friends. The view is extraordinary for a small mountain. In the distance you can see the panorama of the Swiss alps and on a clear day as far as the Jura mountain range. There's a fireplace just by the tower, and a restaurant with good food and great deserts nearby. We go there fairly often.

No money to leave the grey city for Graubünden, no time to overnight in the mountains? Bachtel is a great day trip and likely as not is above the clouds in the clear sunny air (check the forecast!) The trail is easy and maintained even in winter, and there is cross-country skiing rental and 2 cosy restaurants. You'll need to bring your own sled if you want to sled back down. It would be worth it.

You can park at Bachtel Orn and follow the footpath up (30 - 40 minutes). Climb the tower at the top and you are rewarded with great views of the mountains and lakes (in clear weather you can see as far as the bernese alps).

probably the most touristy place in the hills of Zurich but still not touristy at all. I love it up there, great views and just nature!
