They really take pumpkins seriously at Juckerhof! There are dozens of huge sculptures – yes, made of pumpkins – and then there are several hundred (!) varieties of pumpkins to admire, some of them for sale, if you like. Of course there is a restaurant which serves all kinds of pumpkin dishes. You and your kids can also carve pumpkins, tools are provided. An impressive and slightly quirky destination which children love. A little walk takes you to pretty lake Pfäffikon just next to the farm.
Pumpkin exhibition 2018 open daily until November 4. Until October restaurant and shop open until 22:00, in Nov until 18:00.
To get there, take the S14 train in direction of Hinwil, get off at Aathal. From there it's a 20 minute walk. On busy days (weekend with sunny weather mostly) there is a shuttle bus to the farm (5Sfr).
