Foxtrail Baccara – Rapperswil

Out and about in the rose town of Rapperswil – the beach trail takes you past the children’s zoo until you come across a dreamy island near the university. From there, it’s just as dreamy: you explore the cute old town of Rapperswil and climb the stairs until you reach the castle complex on the hill. Here, the lake lies at your feet in all its splendour. Afterwards, you’ll meet some forest animals at the deer park before heading down to the lakeside path for the finale.

Foxtrail Elixira – Illnau-Effretikon

The trail takes you to idyllic Illnau-Effretikon – past green fields and cosy houses. You start at Effretikon railway station and are immediately confronted with an ancient secret. You find a love potion in an old well – but which one is it? To find the right source, you’ll need to use your instincts. Listen carefully, the song of the nightingale will show you the way to the miracle elixir. The highlight follows at Moosburg Castle before you finish the trail at Effretikon Reformed Church.

Foxtrail Picasso – Kloten

At Picasso, you are right in the middle of the action surrounding a spectacular art heist. The trail starts at Zurich-Kloten Airport and leads to the futuristic building “THE CIRCLE”. The funicular railway takes you high up to the sky platform and through Butzenbüelpark. The route then takes you to the Balsberg radar station, where you have to hack into the airport’s radar system. But don’t waste too much time, the fences won’t wait! The trail leads you through the forest and along the rope park back to Kloten.
