The Uetliberg with its summit at the Uto Kulmo 871 metres above sea level towers above the roofs of Zurich. From the top you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the city of Zurich, Lake Zurich and the Limmat Valley up as far as the Alps.
From the Sihlsprung up to the entrance to metropolitan Zürich, the valley is a mixture of urban and rustic landscapes. The origin of the Sihl River is to be found on the 2283-meter Drusberg. The Sihl flows through the Sihl Lake near Einsiedeln and meanders through the Sihl Valley (Sihltal) towards Zürich.
An excursion to the grottoes and the prehistoric park of Réclère is nearly like Jules Verne's "Journey to the Center of the Earth". The large limestone cave with stalactites and stalagmites gives the excursion the necessary atmosphere and the life-sized dinosaurs in the park are the climax of a fascinating trip through time.
