Dietikon

Dietikon is the fifth biggest city of the canton of Zürich in Switzerland, after Zürich, Winterthur, Uster and Dübendorf. It is the capital of the same-named district of Dietikon and part of the Zürich metropolitan area.GeographyThe industrial city Dietikon is situated at an altitude of 388m at the confluence of the Reppisch and Limmat rivers, located in the Limmat Valley (German: Limmattal), along the railway line from Zürich to Baden. Here and in the neighboring region, Spreitenbach, is also the large rail freight marshalling yard Limmattal.Dietikon has an area of 9.3km2. Of this area, 17.2% is used for agricultural purposes, while 27% is forested. Of the rest of the land, 49.1% is settled (buildings or roads) and the remainder (6.7%) is non-productive (rivers, glaciers or mountains). In 1996 housing and buildings made up 33.8% of the total area, while transportation infrastructure made up the rest (15.3%). Of the total unproductive area, water (streams and lakes) made up 4.9% of the area. As of 2007 40.7% of the total municipal area was undergoing some type of construction.The largest and best known forests of the municipality include the Honeret, Guggenbüehl and Röhrenmoos.The Honeret forest lies on a side moraine of the Linth glacier ("Linthgletscher"). There are over 200 prominent stones therefrom up to foundling boulders as big as 25m2. The Honeret and the Guggenbüehl-Wald are separated by only one main street. In the forest, there are a few sources that form the brooks Tobelbach and Stoffelbach and flow into the Reppisch afterwards. Also in the forest lies the forest cottage "Lorenzhütte."
