The SBB train S10 takes you to the top of this mountain on the edge of Zurich. The views are great and it's a lovely walk. If you plan on taking the cable car down, it doesn't run all year.

We went in October of 2011 but that is not an option to select. We had only been in Switzerland a few days and were heading off to other cantons besides Zurich. My husband's Swiss family suggested a day trip up the Uetliberg from the Zurich Central station. We took the train up to the base of the mountain, then... More

Having been in the city awhile I yearn for a bit of fresh air, and this is the place. A 20 min trip on the S bahn and there you are away from it all. There are a lot of other people with the same idea, but you have space. The views if you have a clear day are amazing.

This is a mountainous area, not so far from Zürich Central, SBB train S10 goes to Uetliberg from Zurich HB, I think it takes only 20 mins to reach there by this train. On the other hand, you may ride a cable train from other side which is close to "Adliswil Train Station" and then needs to walk to reach... More

Unfortunately my time in Zurich was short and the day we chose to go here, the skies were overcast, so we did not get to see the spectacular views that everyone who has been speak about. However, we still enjoyed our short hike. I think it was 2 hours to the highest point but we stopped long before that. It... More

Two towers sit on top of this mountain overlooking Zurich. From Zurich, it looks like a mini-Eifel Tower and a mini- CN Tower (toronto). The views from the tops are spectacular, with the city below you, and the lake leading away towards the swiss alps. The train ride takes about 45 minutes from the main Zurich train station. Don't make... More

We took the train from the city centre to the end of the line and enjoyed some refreshments overlooking the beautiful countryside below. We then walked to the top which was in fact a leisurely stroll on tar mac roadway and paths right up to the Hotel. Adjacent to the hotel a communication tower with a free stairway The Üetliberg...

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... More

Take the train to Uetliberg from Zurich HB (the main station). Be sure that the train goes all the way to Uetliberg and doesn't stop at the station before. We had to ride all the way back to HB and then take the next train back to that same station, get off, and wait for the train that goes all... More

This is a free, must-experience attraction if you like the outdoors. You can get to the beginning of a nice series of trails by taking tram 13 from Zurich HB all the way to the end, Albisguetli. Walk past the bathroom and dog park on your right, and continue straight on the sidewalk for about 3 minutes. You will come... More
