Climb or go by train to the top of Mount Uetliberg to enjoy a great view of Zurich and the lake. For hiking to the Uetliberg summit (about 1 hour): 1) The varied Denzlerweg leads from Albisguetli (end of tram line 13) in a rather straight line to the summit. 2) Also from Albisguetli there’s a lantern path a little further west on the ridge 3) From Triemli (end of tram line 14), the Hohensteinweg leads over a shoulder of the mountain which is a very popular sledding spot in winter. 4) From Uitikon-Waldegg (car park) a forest road leads to the peak. This path has the smallest slope.
