The trail starts in the bustling Shopville of the main train station. From there you continue to the Römerhof and with the 'Bähnli' to the noble hotel Dolder, which is high above Zurich in the open nature. You follow the Wolfsbach stream through the enchanting forest and end up in Fluntern. The walk takes you through the residential quarter, past the church and up to the observatory on the ETH grounds. The trail ends in the pretty alleys of Niederdorf.
