Route: Zurich, Manegg – A3 Zurich-South – Sihl (Hochstrasse)

Allmend Brunau in the south of Zurich is a unique recreational area and an asset to the city: A continuous, freely accessible area of this size close to the city is nowadays a rarity. The Allemend, which was used as an armory for a long time, has only been available for use to the public since 1987. In Zurich-Brunau, a city highway (the Sihlhochstrasse) was set up on bridges above the Sihl, the biggest tributary of the river Limmat. The Uetliberg Tunnel runs through the local mountain of Zurich, the Uetliberg, and thus, as a section of the A3 highway, forms a direct connection between the west of Zurich (Birmensdorf) and the south of Zurich (Wollishofen).
