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.

While in Zurich, my husband and I took the S10 train from the main station to Uetliberg which took about 20 minutes. Right at the train station, there was a food truck with bratwurst, beverages, etc., restrooms, and also a casual restaurant. From the train station, you can walk 10 minutes uphill to the top (kulm) where there is a... More

Uetliberg is a 1,000m mountain a short train ride out of Zurich centre (20 mins). The train takes you up through the suburbs, grass meadows and forest. It is clean and fresh and literally on the city's doorstep. At the end station there is a short walk up to the hotel at the top of the mountain and there's a... More

We took a trip from Zurich HB train station to Uetliberg. Once there, there's a restaurant and restroom. Very convenient. From there we walked up to Hotel Uto Kulm. There is a tower that you can climb (via a staircase) for gorgeous views of Zurich. I understand you can see the snow capped mountains from this location as well but... More

Easy to reach by train from Zürich main station. 20 minutes ride, plus 10 minute walk to reach the top. Make sure you climb the tower (lots of stairs though and nothing for people who are afraid of heights). For the less adventurous, the nice garden with the viewing platform will do to. The have a restaurant on top but... More

For a visitor to Zurich, the train trip up to Uetliberg is a great way to get out of the city and see outstanding views of the city of Zurich, the lake and the nearby mountains. The train leaves from the Zurich main train station and winds up the mountain through forests with walking and mountain biking tracks. The trip... More

Walk up the Üetliberg in Zürich, starting from the Tram station "Triemli" or "Albisgüetli". The way up is quite steep and takes at least one hour, if you are slower 1.5 hours but it is worth the experience! If you are not so good at hiking, take the train up there, starting at the main station "Zürich Hauptbahnhof" an enjoy... More

Uetliberg is really one of my favourite trails in and around Zürich, for the fact that it is easily accessbile with the small train S10 which departs from the main train station at an interval of every 20min. The ride takes about 20min to go up. If you don't want to do much walking, just go to the Uteliberg Kulm,... More

You can see the masts and viewing platform from anywhere in Zurich. Take the S10 train from the main station. Trains to the top go every half hour in the week and three times an hour at the weekends. You will need to walk about ten minutes to the very top where you can view the whole of Zurich and... More
