Because of bad weather forecast, I stayed close to home and made a trip up to the Pfannenstiel. I started my trip in my hometown but you can start it from wherever you want, there are so many options to do this Hike. It’s an easy Hike and if the weather is good you have a great view of the lake and the alps behind it.
The Pfannenstiel is also a good place if you don’t want to go to the more crowded Uetliberg on the other side of Zurich.
This might be my go to hike for a weekend where there isn’t time or energy to travel 2h+ one way and definitely if the weather is terrible.
