If you are looking for a good hiking day, hike the mountain starting at the base from Triemlispital (accessible from bus line 80). A leisurely pace will take about 1.5 hours from the base to the top. The paths are relatively steep, but well-paved and...More

From Uetliberg amazing view over Zurich, the lake and the mountains. Great walk through the woods especially in the snow from Felsenegg to Uetliberg. Quite a lot of people up there so hard to get lost, i.e. one of the few routes I don’t mind...More

The place is very nice and is good to spend a nice sunny afternoon. The tour with the small train is always pleasant. I think that 2 CHF per person to go up on the tower are definitely too much.

We took the train to the hill and walked a path to the top. The views are great and there is a Cafe at the top. It is a very good option if you are looking to get away from the city.
