The Üetliberg railway (with regular scheduled trains) takes summiteers to Zurich's "own" mountain, 871 meters high. The high-altitude hike following the train trip is also suitable for families; after visiting the restaurant terrace on the Felsenegg, the gondola lift is waiting to take walkers down to Adliswil, where the S-Bahn (train) runs back towards Zurich.

Description

The Planet Trail is a magical ridge walk: in just under two hours, hikers can journey through our solar system as they admire the superb panoramas. Zurich's "own" mountain, the Üetliberg, is reached by train from Zurich's main station; day-trippers and sun-worshippers have been riding up the "Üezgi" in comfort since 1875 (with a few interruptions).

The combined guest house and spa resort was opened 25 years earlier and is now a stylish hotel with superb all-round views. Visitors with no fear of heights can ascend to the 72-meter-high viewing tower platform at the "Uto Kulm" hotel for even more impressive vistas of the city of Zurich, the lake and the Alps.

Equally stunning views can be admired on the short high-altitude hike up to the Felsenegg, close to Switzerland's first and only nature adventure park: the Zurich-Sihlwald Wilderness Park. As well as leisure hikers and families, visitors will encounter rangers who are glad to offer information about their work and the natural environment.
