Beautiful scenery of Zurich accessible with a one-fare short train-tram ride to the top of this hill in Zurich. Be prepared to hike up the top after the train drop off.

Great view from the top. Make sure that you plan to travel on a clear day and you may be lucky to grab a view of ALPS. We can see whole of Zurich from the top

A great trip up to the Uetliberg mountain. On a clear day you can see for miles..Fantastic view over the Alps etc. Have a drink from the restarant on top & a rest then take the train or walk down.
