The Albis Pass in the conurbation of the city of Zurich leads from Langnau am Albis to Mettmenstetten. It has a very modest altitude of 793 metres. About 1½ km from the top of the pass is the Hochwacht lookout tower (wooden tower with 153 steps). On clear days with a good distant view, there is a boundless panoramic view of the entire Sihlwald Zurich wilderness park and beyond: from the Black Forest to the Säntis, the Glarus Alps, Lake Zug, Rigi, Pilatus, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, all the way to the Jura. The panorama above shows an approx. 90 degree panoramic view from east to south.
