I have been visiting the Uetliberg since I was a child and it has always been a special place for me. On the positive side, the walks in the woods are still beautiful. Even on busier days you can hear the birdsong and when the sun shines, the smell of the pines trees is lovely. The views of the mountains, the lake and the city are fabulous if the weather is clear. The Uetliberg Bahn is still a joy to ride on - and you can board at the main station. The one thing that has changed is the increasing commercialism at the top, where the hotel and restaurant now dominate what was a relaxed, public space. Times change and this may be seen as progress but for me it has tipped the balance. However, nothing can detract from the natural beauty of the woods and the unparalleled views. If you have limited mobility, you may not make it from the train station to the very top as the path is steep and there is no other transport.
