Waid Vantage Point

The view from Waid is simply breathtaking. The best times to take the most beautiful souvenir photos are at sunrise and sunset.

Waid is a vantage point on Zurich’s Käferberg, which lies above the urban quarter of Höngg. Those who wish can walk in an hour or two from the city center through the Wipkingen and Höngg quarters and up to this popular lookout point. However, the journey can easily be shortened by taking the bus.

At the top, visitors can delight in a wonderful panorama over the entire city, with Lake Zurich behind it. And in clear weather, the snow-capped Alps of Central Switzerland are even visible.

Many use their excursion up to Waid to take some picturesque souvenir photos – the best time is at sunrise or sunset. And at the Die Waid restaurant, guests can enjoy the view accompanied by delicious cuisine – in the afternoon with coffee and cake, or in the evening over a romantic dinner.
