Starting from Einsiedeln there are a lot of mountain bike tours. You can go into all directions. But one of the most beautiful ones is if you go to the hill which is between Einsiedeln and lake Z端rich.

From there you have a extraordinary view over the whole lake, back to Einsiedeln and the mountains and you can even see Z端rich itself which is about 30 kilometres away.

Once a year there is a big mountain bike race called “Iron bike” which starts and ends in Einsiedeln. The tour goes up and down over several mountains in total more than 2300 meters of altitude. The first up is this hill with the lake Z端rich on your left.

But while participating at the race you barely have the time to enjoy the view, so better to make the tour on a sunny sunday morning.

There is a new kind of sky scrapper in Z端rich since end of last year. It is located very convenient. Its at train station Hardturm and you can just leave the train and almost enter the building.

In one of the upper floors, there is a restaurent calledClouds. Very impressive! It offers a restaurent, a bar and a launch. We went to the bar. The restaurent was fully booked for the next couple of months.

In the bar, luckily we got a place directly at the window from where you have an impressive view over Z端rich. You canlook to Z端rich Main Station and see trains coming and going. They look like toy trains. Very funny.
