The Glecksteinhütte is an abandoned mountain hut in Fallätsche, Zurich. It was built in the early 1900s so that people in Zurich could enjoy an "alpine" experience without having to travel far to the higher mountains. Today, it is in danger of falling off the cliff it is built on. The foggy weather is typical for Zurich around autumn and winter.
