Hiking

Bauma is a good starting point for a hike. There are many signposts and worthwhile destinations include the small village of Sternenberg, Hagheerenloch or the Bachtel and Hoernli mountains (well those mountains are more like hills in the Swiss understanding).

Dampfbahn-Verein Zürcher Oberland

Bauma is the hub for steam train events for the steamtrain club. Several times a year they run the steam train on the Bauma-Hinwil track. You can check for dates on their website. At other times you may see some very old carriages patiently waiting in the railway station for their next use.

Töss river - Bauma

Töss river

Toess (Töss) River

You can follow this river in an easy and flat hike in both directions. The path along the river is also very popular with bicycles and in places with inline skaters. If you are tired just hop on the next train back to Winterthur.

Downriver on the way to Winterthur you will pass Rikon. Rikon is famous for its pot and pan factory but also for the Tibetan community which settled there as refugees decades ago and there is a Buddhist monastery which gets frequent visits from the Dalai Lama.

Explore the town

The old center of Bauma is not very big and easily be explored on foot. If you walk uphill on the road towards Wetzikon there is a museum in an old spinning factory.
