One of the “must do” activities while in Zurich. A local told us that this “would be a fun and interesting activity.” Uetliberg is 869 meters or 2851 feet high mountain that overlooks Zurich and the lake. Taking S10 from the train station, it is a twenty minute ride to the top. There are frequent trains that go every thirty... More

We were travelling with an infant so didnt go for hiking. otherwise... More

Uetliberg is a nice place to go on a sunny day to get a lovely view over Zurich, the lake and the mountains. It can be reached easily from Zurich central station. Here you can climb a tower (2CHF) and get a 360 view of the surroundings below. There are a number of hiking trails as well as mountain biking... More

Perfect for a nice view on Zurich on a sunny day. You need two francs if you want to see the view from the upper tower, though.

We took the walk up to the top and took a train down. It's a great walk with awesome views on the way up. At the top we were treated with fabulous views of the Alps. Also at the top was Christ the redeemer.

Spotting the Uetliberg from afar (a rooftop in Zurich old town) we decided to hike to the tower which sits atop the berg the following day. It's quite a distance from old town and there are a number of public transport that connect to the area if walking long distances isn't your thing. But the area is easily reached in... More

A must in Zuerich! The mountain is located near Zuerich. The time to go there by train is around half an hour from the Zuerich HBF(main station). I recommend to go up by train because is you chose to go by foot it will take about 2-2.30 hours of walking up the hill with lack of places to rest so... More
