Swiss Activities Tip

This hike is especially beautiful in autumn. At this time of year, the leaves turn reddish and create a very special landscape thanks to the many chestnut trees.

Did you know that every year at the end of October more than 60 chestnut market traders meet in Greppen near Küssnacht? There everything about the chestnut is presented and sold. At the "Chestene Chilbi" you will not only find delicious specialties, but also natural products from the region.
