Re: August 1 and all that noise

Or another plan... Hike outside CH. Do you know any nice places for walk in some other countries within max 3 hours from ZH (so probably in Germany or Austria)? We would go for a hike there instead of siting in our apartment and listening these "boom, booom, boom" noises.
I'd recommending going a bit farther than the Bodensee area in Germany. One year we had the bad luck to run into a number of little village fests on the German side in the border towns - out of the frying pan into the (albeit much smaller) fire.

France is usually good if you are up for a drive - choose any picturesque town about half an hour up the Wine Route in Alsace and you'll likely run into a quite a few Swiss dog owner-escapees.

In Austria, the Montafon area is usually nice - but I think there is a festival going on in St Anton this weekend as well.
