9/18 - East Lake Zürich Sightseeing + bike ride

In the morning we toured the highlights of old-town Rapperswil on foot, before picking up our bikes. Pedaling through fields, woods and quaint towns, we enjoyed beautiful sights onto lake Zurich and the surrounding countryside. The bike ride, including time for pictures and little breaks, got us to the 'Pfannenstiel', a peak in the mountain range cradling Lake Zurich to the north. After climbing the observation tower and enjoying spectacular views of the entire region, we savored some local specialties in the restaurant Hochwacht. After lunch we rolled downhill to the shore of Lake Zurich, and after some coffee and cake we boarded the ship to Zurich, where we ended today's Explorathon.
