Our rating: 8.60
Overall rating:
Uetliberg mountain (869 m) is a city mountain in Zurich. It offers excellent views of the city, lake and the Alps .

From the center you can go on foot or take the train to Uetliberg station, find the schedule here https://www.sbb.ch/en/home.html. You need a ticket for 4 zones, buy a daily ticket for 17.60 CHF (8.80 CHF for Half Fare Card).

We arrived by car and parked here N 47 22.190 E 8 27.995, the mountain is closed to cars. Parking is free, but you need to walk to the Uitikon Waldegg station and go few stations by train to Uetliberg. From the final station you also need to walk about 600 meters.

At the very top there is a hotel UTO KULM (booking.com), where we spent the night. It's price (less than 100 euros) is pretty good for Zurich. The first hotel, by the way, appeared on the mountain back in 1815.

Also there is such an unusual construction. It is both an antenna and an observation deck. You need a 2 CHF coin to open automatic door. If you spend the night in a hotel, then take free tokens at the reception.
