BBQ near Zurich

Hello, before the summer sun cools down we want to do one last big BBQ. We have done it on our terrace but want to do it outside now

Aware that there are places in the city, on the limmat, near Bellevue and many other places in the city, but we want a place outside the city of Zurich maximum within one hour of travel(train). Best will be if possible with a scenic view (say near the lake or on a hill top or in the middle of a forest, etc).

We are hoping to have wood and arrangements available and not to carry with us.

We will be about 10 people including children.

Any suggestions from experience? Is this possible at all?

Katzensee, has a swimming area, walking paths through a forest and nature reserve, reachable by public transport even. Bring charcoal or firewood, there is a kiosk there for cold drinks, ice cream etc. It can be _very_ busy when the weather is nice.

Re: BBQ near Zurich

I would suggest Milch buck park and Bucheggplatz for BBQ, both are very nice places near Zurich City.

How about Hönggerberg/Waid? It is still in the city, so easy to reach with public transport, but in an area with a lot of wood and you have an amazing view over the city (and some of the lake).

Check this link for other suggestions (German only): Züritipp.

Re: BBQ near Zurich

the Forest at Käferberg its next to Bucheggplatz. There is no swimming there, but there are lots of large BBQ pits, if you get there early enough you can grab a BBQ to yourselves with benches. It in the shade of the forest so its great. Has a great view over Zürich too.
