The view from the higher ground was great on this summer day. One one side you will see the city of Zurich and mountains and alps on the other side. The walk up to the top was quite tough if you have knee and back problem. However, take a slow stroll will be alright. There is a small naturally built... More

The train ride up to the Uetliberg station is quick and very easy, probably about 30 minutes each way. Once you get there, there's a small hike up the mountain. It's not too difficult and is only about 5 - 10 minutes. Once you get to the top, there's a viewing area, the TV tower and a hotel with both... More

This is a good day out. Our niece and nephew were visiting us and we took them here. There are a few ways to get here. We took the train from Zurich main station. This gets you very close to the top. There are a few hundred metres to walk from the station. It's uphill, but not arduous. At the... More

The view from the top is just amazing. If the air is dry and clean, you can easily see the Alps behind Zürich lake, and of course Zürich itself. Absolutely stunning. Train service is very efficient (as usual in Switzerland).

Very good way to spent a sunday. Was easy to reach with 13tram. The up hiking required some strenghts, but all is doable. Many children and seniors go the same path. Day was full of clouds on lake and Zurich, thus nothing competed with beautiful views to Alps!

Easily reachable by train and a short walk the Üetliberg offers the best view onto Zurich and if weather permits the alps. On good days one can even see the notorious mountain trio Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The tower is cool and free, the restaurant not so much.

A short (20 minutes) train ride to Uetliberg followed by a short walk will give you great views of the city of Zurich, Zurich lake and countryside some 1,000m high. Enjoy lunch or just drinks at the hotel at the peak. Avoid going if cloudy or foggy. Highly recommended.

I have two things to add to the other reviews. One is some clarity about the path to the viewing tower. After you exit the train, head away from the station and either go up the stairs or take the road (they lead to the same place). I thought this was a little confusing at first since all the signs...

From the Zurich HB it is about a 25 minute trip (usually leaves on track 21/22). The price is included on a ZurichCard. Great views from the Uetilberg stop. However take the extra 10-15 minute walk to Oto Kulm. The views from there (and the viewing platform even further up) are remarkable. You can see the Eiger, If you are... More

Good beginner level trek. Yoy also can get to Uetliberg by train and trek the easier part. The view from the top is nice. Make sure it isn't cloudy or rainy to enjoy the trek.
