This easy hike around the Pfäffikersee can be done the whole year and is accessible to strollers and wheelchairs. The whole perimeter of the lake is a protected area, which is quite rare. The reeds, bushes and swamps are a real paradise for birds, frogs and other wildlife, the best time to observe them is in spring. Near Pfäffikon the roman ruins of Kastell Irgenhausen can be visited and there are also well maintained swimming areas.
