Baden - Baldegg - Gebenstorfer Horn - Brugg

Just here between the town of Baden on the Limmat and Brugg on the Aare is the confluence of the big rivers of Central Switzerland, the Aare, the Reuss and the Limmat, which is why this is also called Switzerland's moated region. From the Gebentorfer Horn you can see quite clearly where the three rivers meet.
