Hiking from Altburg to the Chatzensee

December 5, 2020 was a cold and grey day. Nevertheless I kept to my hiking routine, and selected walk no. 33 from my book with walkingtours in Canton Zurich (‘Wanderführer Zürich Zürichsee 50 Touren’ by Franz Wille). A walk of 12.9 km, starting from Zurich Bucheggplatz, over the Chäferberg, along the new ETH (Swiss Technical University) buildings, across the Hönggerberg to the old Altburg castle, along the Chatzensee (a lake), through the woods to Rümlang.

Despite the difficult lighting conditions I managed to take a couple of interesting shots with my Panasonic G81 camera and the Panasonic 12-60 mm 3.5-5.6 lens .
