The trip up to Uetliberg was great. Short train ride from Zurich takes you almost to the top of the mountain (you have to walk about 15min to get to the top), where you can see Zurich and the lake to one side and beautiful...More

Take the train from the platform 22 from the Central Main Train Station (Zürich Hauptbahnhof), every 20-25 min (25-30' trip). The trip is free with the Zurich Card. Then, you have to "climb" up to the hill (10-15') through a wonderful path. There is a...More

We wanted to go see the Dolder Grand Hotel but were having a challenge finding the Tram/Funicular stop info. We were told at our hotel to skip Dolder and go to Uetliberg instead. Wrong. They are BOTH great and worth your time!

S10 train from Zurich will take you to Uetliberg Station. You can then take a short walk up to the tower for beautiful views towards Zurich. If you fancy a longer walk for 2 to 4 hours, you can take the planet trail (planetweg) which...More

As tourists, who do not speak German, we had a challenging time figuring out the train system to get up here. However, the incredible views made it worth the initial frustration. Even on warm days in Zurich, bring a sweater as it’s cooler on the...More

A nice trip by Tram towards the top, and then I hike to get all the way up. Some may find it steep, but it is SO worth getting all the way up. An absolutely wonderful view of the city and the lake. Do not...More

You will get the train from Zurich HB, that's the main station and you check the timings at the station.
