What To Expect
Take a break from the fast-paced urban life and enjoy an easy hike up Üetliberg, the highest mountain in Zurich. With an altitude of 871 meters above sea level, Üetliberg is a rewarding destination at any time of the year, as there are a number of hiking trails, which sometimes even start in the city center. Mountain climbers will also feel right at home on the Üetliberg, and can test their skills on one of the twelve routes, each of varying difficulty. In addition, there is a launch site for paragliders.
After a 15-minute tram ride via Bahnhofstrasse and Paradeplatz to Albisgütli, follow your guide to an uphill trail to the observation tower. Pass by the Path of the Planets, an enchanting ridge walk that will take you through the Solar System in an illustrative way. Along the path, sized and space appropriately are models of the planets, along with small plaques giving snippets of interesting information. Üetliberg also houses Europe's largest yew tree forest located on the Northern slopes. While hiking through a wide and clearly-marked path, learn more about the city and the mountain itself as your expert local guide who will share his wealth of knowledge with you.
Upon reaching the peak of the mountain, be up for another short climb to the 72-meter high observation tower, and be rewarded with magnificent views right across the city of Zurich, the Limmat River, the Lake and the wooded slopes that surrounds the Alps. Right next to the tower, the hotel and restaurant UTO KULM offers ample refreshments after your climb.
Finally, follow your guide and take the same way down on foot.
