Töss Valley(Redirected from Tösstal)
Usually Tösstal is the name of the upper Töss valley, i.e. its narrow, valley-like area in the southeast of the city of Winterthur. The river Töss rises at Tössstock mountain (el. 1,154 m) flows along the valley including the municipalities and villages of Steg, Lipperschwändi and Wellenau (villages of Fischenthal), Bauma, Juckern, Blitterswil, Saland, Tablat, Wila, Turbenthal, Zell, Rikon, Kollbrunn, and Sennhof near Winterthur. The Tösstal is a popular recreation area and well known for hiking tours in the surrounding mountains as Schnebelhorn and Hulftegg pass, and for skating and biking along Töss.
The lower Töss valley includes the widely flattened parts in the west of Winterthur; it compromises the quarters of Winterthur called Töss and Wülflingen, the municipalities Neftenbach, Pfungen, Dättlikon, Embrach, Rorbas, Freienstein and Teufen where the Töss joins the Rhine at Tössegg.
