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.

  • train almost to the top. great views. Sunset. the hotel at the top is a good idea to stay up there. Silly charge to go up the tower  more »
  • Went up the mountain by tram but one can choose to hike up as well. It is more like a hill than a mountain in terms of its height. Nonetheless, the views at the top is beautiful. Recommended to go up....  more »
  • Nice place to walk around. The road is clearly defined.A nice addition is that there is plenty of water on the road to replenish your water bottles. Though I'd recommend taking a bottle extra with you, if you're a big drinker.
