Zurich Oberland Milky Way.

Zürcher Oberländer Milchstrasse

Route description
The Zurich Oberland Milky Way starts at Hinwil station. It is worthwhile to make a first culinary stop at the Rüegg dairy in Hinwil. Via Sack we soon reach Wernetshausen and the Bachtel dairy, not only famous for its good cheese but also for the handmade raw-milk butter, the curd cheese and yoghurt selection. The dairy follows the guidelines of the Demeter organic label.

Goats and automobiles
We continue on the Sennhüttenstrasse towards Girenbad. The village features two cheese factories. The curious goats along the path show us the way to Schuppli's goat dairy. Its delicacies are sold at the Girenbad dairy together with their own specialities. Via Schofrain we get to the Thysenwaldsberg cheese factory. Those who are interested may combine their tasting of Waldsberg cheese with a visit at the vehicle museum.

Knights and lumberjacks
After this excursion we continue through the forest and get to the Chopfholz farm inn where you will be spoilt with a fantastic view and homemade organic specialities. Along the road we get to the last stop of the Zurich Oberland Milky Way: the Rüegg cheese factory in Ringwil. Anyone who would like to know what a Rusty Knight or a Lumberjack tastes like, must stop here. By bus or walking on the hiking trail through the romantic Wildbach ravine, we reach Hinwil again.
