Scale Uetliberg Mountain to admire Switzerland's largest city and its location on the edge of the Alps. At 869 m (2,851 ft) tall, the small mountain rises above the city and is easily accessible from Zurich. Take a short ride on the train to just below the summit, where you can continue your ascent on foot. The mountain is popular for hiking and mountain biking as well as sledding, depending on the season. For the best views, climb to the top of the lookout tower.

  • It's a must do when in Zurich. The view of the city combined with the mountains far out and the water bodies closeby are awesome.

  • It is a must if you have a swiss pass. Get on S-10 to go up the mountain. From the station, there are steps (not well marked) to climb to the top. Keep climbing until you cannot climb anymore...

  • Perfect place to have a look get a panoramical view of city of Zürich and the beautiful lake. Besides that, you can also get a clear view of the Swiss Alps from up the observation tower. You might have to pay a euro or two to enter the view point up top, but it is totally worth it. Don't forget to check the weather before hiking up, in case you are going up to view the Alps. You can also take the train up or use the bus, in case you are not up for a hike
  • If you're looking for a 360° View over Zürich, then you must visit this spot. Also several Hiking trails are available, the scenery and nature are so beautiful, and you can have a quick lunch (some food stands offer super delicious Swiss Würst with the authentic kartoffelsalat) or you can eat at the Uto Kulm restaurant and enjoy some raclette / fondue.
