The Dolderbahn - a cogwheel railway - is easily accessed by streetcar from the center of Zurich. The fare is covered by a tram ticket or included free if you have a Swiss Rail Pass. The short ride up a steep incline takes you to the Dolder, a large wooded hillside park that has lovely views over central Zurich and the lake.

Dolderbahn is a steep funicular ride up the hill from the base in the city of Zurich. The base station can be conveniently accessed by public transportation. The ride is included in the Zurich city card. It is a unique and different experience. There are a few stops on the way to the top and one can see some nice houses in the midst of greenery. At the top one gets an opportunity to view the surroundings of Zurich from a different and unique angle. Taking the Dolderbahn back to the base from the top is worth it as well.

Beautiful ride with very nice personnel. The most iconic way to get to the Dolder Hotel and the ice rink.

Take the Dolderbahn [small train –“funicular” (08:30 – 18:30 except Sundays) free for the Zurich Card holders], from the από την Römerhofplatz 5 (Tram Νr 3 & 8, Tram stop : “Römerhof’), and go up to «The Dolder Grand» Hotel. From there, follow the wonderful path (17’), that lead to the Zoo, in front of FIFA. From there, take Tram Νr 6 and return to the Zurich city center.

Rode the Dolderbahn to the top of the 'hill' to tour the golf course and see the beautiful Dolder Hotel and spa grounds. Absolutely gorgeous and definitely worth seeing. The funicular is a nice, relaxing ride, which is free with the Zurich pass.
