Take the frequent S1 or S2 service to Uetliberg from Zurich's main station and in 25 minutes you are taking in a breathtaking view of the city, its lake and surrounding mountains. There is a viewing platform (not for anyone who doesn't have a head for heights as it means scaling a vertiginous metal stairway) as well as the verandah of a rather pricey restaurant, which when I visited was full of rather forbidding ladies who lunch of a certain age. In the woods that surround the path leading up from Uedliberg station are benches, picnic tables and barbecue areas so you can avoid the crowds up top and drink in the view below in your own tranquil space. The view is genuinely spectacular and is a great start to any visit to Zurich.
