At 2850 feet above sea level, Uetliberg towers over the rooftops of Zürich. The mountain affords… more
The mountain affords an impressive panoramic view of the city, the lake and the Alps.
The Uetliberg is particularly popular in November, as its summit is often above the blanket of fog that can cover the city at this time of year. In the winter, the hiking trails to the summit are converted into sledding runs.
In summer, there’s plenty to discover on well-marked hiking routes, a mountain bike route, and on the Planet Trail. This hour-and-a-half to two-hour walk from Uetliberg to Felsenegg (Adliswil) takes you on a fascinating tour through a model of our solar system.
The S10 service of the Sihltal Zürich Uetliberg Bahn SZU railway, Europe’s steepest normal-gauge adhesion railway, runs from Zürich Main Station to Uetliberg Station, a ten-minute walk from the summit.
Price for the 4-zone ticket:
Adults: CHF 16 / Children: CHF 8
Free ride with the ZürichCARD.

You have the possibility of climbing to the top of Uetliberg mountain (approx. 1 hour):
- The varied Denzlerweg leads almost straight up from Albisguetli (last stop on the number 13 tram line) to the summit.
- Laternenweg also leads from Albisguetli slightly further westwards up to the ridge.
- The Hohensteinweg leads up from Triemli (last stop on the number 14 tram line) over a shoulder of the mountain and is especially popular in the winter as a sledging run.
- A woodland path leads up from Uitikon-Waldegg (car park) to the summit. This path has the smallest incline.
There is also a mountain bike route that begins at the television tower and takes bikers over 3.5 km and a difference in altitude of 350 m down to the Triemli SZU station.
