“Great Views over Zurich”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

We had the Zurich 3 day travel card and this allowed us to catch the train to the top of the mountain. We visited on New Years Day.

Great views over the city and you can see the mountains in the distance.

New Years day is the only day that you will see rubbish on the streets on zurich, from the New Year Celebrations that finished a few hours before. Very peaceful to sit and watch the world go bye, there are a few hotels on the top of the mountain.

“Top of Misty Zurich.”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Uetliberg is 869 metres above sea level and is Zurich's local mountain.
We visited in May 2013 on a misty rainy day. Still, we got a good view from the top and it was worth the visit.
To get there use the S10 line from Zurich Central Station to Uetliberg Station which you can't miss as it is the terminus. It is apparently the steepest normal rail line in Europe. From here, it is about a 10 minute walk uphill to the viewing platform at the top. At the top is also the hotel Uto Kulm. I believe the restaurant is open to the public. Public toilets are avalable also.
