The hills and mountains around the upper Tösstal (Töss valley) are eminently suited for extended hiking and bike tours. Astoundingly beautiful upland routes with views across the Alps, the Zurich Oberland, Lake Zurich, the Greifensee and the Pfäffikersee are a characteristic of entire region.
Portes du Soleil: the name stands for cross-border, unbounded skiing fun. 14 skiing areas - 8 of them in France and 6 in Switzerland - with over 200 lifts and cable-/railways combine to make the largest single skiing area in the world. In summer things are much quieter here, but even in the warmer months there is spectacular sport. Word has spread in the biking community about the massive bike park with its many downhill slopes and tricky tracks, and it is becoming very popular. Nevertheless, there is room for walkers too.
The mighty and imposing Sissacher Fluh is the emblem of Sissach, dominating the valley below. The climb up from the main town of this region takes just over an hour, and the view from the rocky summit is magnificent, extending from the Vosges and the Jura right round to the Alps.
