The Zurich Oberland includes the Zurich districts of Uster, Hinwil, Pfäffikon and the Middle Töss Valley in the district of Winterthur.
The region borders on the Zurich and Winterthur agglomerations and can be easily reached individually or by public transport.

Landscape

The area around Lake Greifensee and Lake Pfäffikon is flat or slightly undulating, often characterized by protected moorlands and drumlins. Further east are the mountains of the Zurich Oberland: Bachtel Mountain (1115 meters above sea level) in the first range of hills, Schnebelhorn Mountain (1292 meters above sea level) and Hörnli Mountain (1133 meters above sea level) further back on the border to the Canton of St. Gallen.

From these excursion points popular with hikers and bikers, you may enjoy the magnificent panorama of the Alps, Lake Zurich and the Zurich Unterland as far as Lake Constance and Säntis mountain.
