About this app

What would Ferdinand Hodler have done with all the superfluous paint if he were now, 109 years later, again with a brush in front of the Grindelwald Glacier? If Claude Monet had brooded deeply, would he have known about the biodiversity of the waters in which his famous water lilies live? We do not know it. Would we have thought about it? Landscape, that is this indefinite and at the same time familiar environment, which begins with a greeting to the passing dog, moves across fields and fields and ends in the cool forest section in front of the settlement. Landscape. A term for everyone and yet not really tangible. The detour landscape project develops locally specific audio walks that deal with the rural and cultural landscape, far from the Matterhorn kitsch and postcard idyll. A literary invitation for the ear to see the known and unknown paths of our walks at home with different eyes. In which we listen and experience something we believed to be known anew. 100 percent BAG-compliant, without any masquerading. Everything at one click.

Detour on the Albis
Do you already know Huldrych Zwingli, the Kappel Monastery or the Albiskette? Well, from here on we take over so that the inconspicuous becomes apparent. The detour on the Albis is a unique listening and viewing experience and is open for you 24/7. It takes around 1.5 hours at a leisurely pace, like on a walk. Find the green starting point at the Kloster Kappel am Albis stop and start the app.

By train and postbus you can get to Kappel am Albis from Zurich or Lucerne in just under 40 minutes (change in Baar). Get off at Kappel Kloster, blink once and off you go!

PP: If not otherwise possible, there is a large car park behind the Kappel monastery for those arriving by car.

Strollers and wheelchairs
The whole way can be done well with a stroller or with a sturdy wheelchair.

Thanks to our partners, we have succeeded in producing a pilot project with the detour on the Albis, which lays the foundation for a whole series of fantastic detours. From the detour on the Albis as part of the detour landscape APP to all of Switzerland! Thanks to you:
