From Brugg, climb up to the Gebenstorfer Horn, the perfect viewing platform for the Switzerland's «Wasserschloss». Along the Jura ridgeway to Baldegg with views of the Alps, then down to the former Habsburg Stein Castle and down to the beautiful Baden old town.
From Brugg the trail leads along the Aare, over to the Reuss and at the impressive confluence of the river, across the bridge to Turgi. Walkers are richly rewarded for the challenging climb up through the cool forest to the Gebenstorfer Horn: stretching along the north side is the impressive «Wasserschloss» of Switzerland where the Aare, Reuss and the Limmat join together in the middle a single, large pasture landscape.

A restful path leads to the Baldegg. From the water tower there is a wonderful panoramic view across the Mittelland to the Säntis. A gentle forest path leads to the historic ruins of Stein where a Habsburg family celebration in 1308 apparently had fatal consequences. Baden old town is one of Switzerland's most beautiful locations, offering an inviting opportunity to stroll through its streets. The path leading to the pretty Mellingen old town is characterised by the strange, romantic landscape of the Tüfelschäller with its gigantic rock formations and secluded forest sections.
