8/1 - Short hike from Meilen up to the Pfannenstiel

Arriving by train from different directions we met at the train-station in Meilen, and started walking up the Meilener ravine. The woods and the creek provided abundant shade on this hot summer day, and the wild blackberries along the way were a welcome snack to be picked by all. The march was up hill all the way to the top of the Pfannenstiel, where we climed the 174 steps to the top of the lookout tower to enjoy spectacular views of the entire Northeast of Switzerland.
After stopping for a refreshment we hiked down to the shore of Lake Zurich to board the ship for a beautiful, ride back to our starting point.
