Walk Around Lake Pfäffikon

Mountains in the distance

Jucker Farm

Church at Seegräben

Looking at Pfäffikon

On the last weekend that my parents were visiting we decided to go for a walk and combine a visit to Jucker farm since my parents had never been there yet. I drove to Pfäffikon and parked at the train station and we wondered down to the lake to begin our walk. It is about 10km to walk around the whole lake and should take about 2.5 hours but we of course stopped for a while in the farm.

It was quite busy by the lake with lots of people enjoying the sun and some were renting the rowing boats. I remember that I did that with Alessio went he was a quite small on this lake. The walk goes inland after 20mins or so and you pass a roman ruin which was once a fortress, in a place called Irgenhausen.

Passing lots of fields, a small stream and a badi we finally see in the distance Jucker farm and you can tell that it is the right place as you can see the pumpkin exhibits. We stopped there for 1.5 hours and continued on our walk, while at the farm we bought two small bottles of pumpkin secco and after leaving we found a place to stop and have a drink. It tasted very nice and if I go back will buy another bottle.

We saw a few jetties where there were people lying enjoying the sun and having maybe a lazy day, this part of the lake seemed to be covered in lily pads.

Finally back in Pfäffikon again Alessio played at a playground for a bit, it is hard to pass a playground and not let him play for a while. My parents wondered up the road to look at the church where lo and behold there was a wedding apero going on.

I will post the photos of Jucker farm on another post, it is always lovely to see this place.
