Horben

Sins to Lindenberg,

that is the striking mountain range North East of Zug. Horben is a very popular destination, - not only for hikers.
On the way we're crossing  open country as well as forests, typical "Mittelland" areas.

In Sins, up on the hill at the pretty place with church local government offices, a yellow marker points to the Wanderweg. Passing a newer residential areas, showing one home prettier then the other, we smoothly gain altitude.

Auw.jpg (19785 Byte)Walking on lovely roads we're passing fields and meadows in alternating environment. Soon to the West the church tower of the little village of Auw can be seen.

After crossing the main road in Auw, the road is getting steeper. After Mariahalden the final ascent begins, for the most part in the forest.

Horben_strasse.jpg (34295 Byte)After the well earned rest we proceed towards Hohenrain. Until Unter Illau the route follows the Bitumen road, with excellent sight into Mittelland, in the East the Albis chain, then Rigi, to the South the snow capped Alps.

After Unter Illau we're crossing again open field and forest, - on my tour last May I was carefully watched by the grazing cattle. Sometimes the whole herd would run towards me - for those cowgirls I must have looked quite handsome.

Soon Hohenrain is welcoming - with the old castle a remarkable sight. Between the wall and the school area on the Eastern side, a narrow Bitumen road runs down to Oberebersol. Looking back, the castle hill with vineyard makes a imposing picture.

The way by Abtwil to Sins is quite  diversified, on minor roads we're passing open fields and tidy farms. The last part is crossing Brandwald near Sins
