“Fantastic hiking trails in the middle of Zürich”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

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, about 15min walk and enjoy the beautiful panorama view. You can climb up the tower for a even better sight. There is a restaurant right at the Kulm. What I usually do is to go for a 2hr walk through the woods, the meadows and the fields in the direction of Felsenegg. I would pass Felsenegg to walk further to Buchenegg and have a delightful 4-course meal at the restaurant Chluspfer for the price of Fr.19.50. It is a restaurant decorated after the children's book: Max and Moritz, a friendly place with pretty good food and reasonably priced. In the summer time there is a dlightful garden. You really got the feeling that you are on vacation, very relaxed under the parasol. From Buchenegg I would walk back to Felsenegg, a 30 min. stroll and take the cable car back to Adliswil. At the train station Adliswil, I can take S4 with intervals of every 20 min, I will be back to Zürich in no time. If you want fresh air, nice view, good food. This is the place for you and the train fare is not too outrageous when compared with other spots in Switzerland. You can visit this place most of the year except in winter when there might be snow.

“Easy Way to get Overview of Zurich”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

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 the lake. There is a restaurant which seems to do well in the evening, especially in good weather. It is a pleasant half day excursion and free with many transport passes.

“An excellent little excursion from the centre of Zurich”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

If, like us, you like to get out of the city and see some splendid views and have a choice of some easy to moderate walks, this is well worthwhile.

“Great walking and lovely views of Zurich.”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

So close to Zurich, this is a great little taste of the mountains if you can't get any further out of town.
Right at the top is a sitting area and an expensive restaurant. You can of course bring your own picnic. The train runs almost to the top so if you have mobility issues or just don't like walking it doesn't have to be too taxing.
