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.

  • This is by far one of the best places I’ve been too for views. Recommend going at sunset it was beautiful on a clear day with no clouds. Could see all of Zurich city as well as the Swiss Mountains...

  • Totally worth the trek to the top of the mountain. We took the trams and buses to the top and it was well worth it. It costs €2 to climb the tower at the top of the mountain which is well worth it...

  • One of the most beautiful views of Zürich. It’s a 1 km trek after getting down from the train but make sure to have strong grip shoes to trek as there’s a lot of ice which might be difficult to walk through
  • An absolute must do when visiting Zurich. A stunning view and easy to access by train or if you have the time there are lovely trails all the way to the top.
  • A beautiful place with breathtaking views of Zurich and the Alps. In winter a fairytale snowy landscape and sledding fun for the whole family and in summer a popular destination for athletes and nature lovers. Accessible only on foot or by public transport. About 10 minutes on foot from the Uetlibergbahn to the observation tower.
  • 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.
