It only takes a few minutes to get from Pfäffikon station to the lakeside promenade. Let's go right around the lake where we soon get to a ruderal site that the city has conceded to nature as a contribution to biodiversity. Anyway, the lake is an important retreat for local flora and fauna: the largest part of the shore is under nature conservation.
Through reed beds and marsh land, then along the edge of the forest we soon get to large fruit plantations. They are already part of the Juckerfarm. Every fall, a unique spectacle is provided here - all about pumpkins: exhibitions where characters from fairy tales or dinosaurs have been made of pumpkins and a regatta where the boaters try to steer giant carved pumpkins; just to mention a few of the many attractions as also outside of pumpkin season there is always a lot to discover.
Historic climbing paradise
After the excursion to the farm, we follow the path to the Auslikon public bathing area. Further on, shortly before Pfäffikon the ruins of a Roman fortress are located at Irgenhausen. The fortress had been built around 300 years after Christ. Adults are impressed by the view; children enjoy the spacious climbing paradise. A short time later we are back at Pfäffikon and at the Baumen public bath that attracts with water slides and a sandy beach. Who can resist a refreshing dip into the water?
