Uetliberg Mountain

Reviewed By travelgrumpy - Zurich, Switzerland

You can walk up or take the Little ride from Zürich main Station. The last bit to the top do you have to walk, but you'll be rewarded with amazing views over the City, the lake and the surrounding area. From here you can walk further over the hillridge

Uetliberg

Reviewed By JayWT - Northants

I had a free day on a trip to Zurich for work, so thought that the view from Uetilberg was worth a look. Several sites advised that November is a great time to visit due to the fog, but that depends on how high the fog is. After leaving my hotel early in the morning, a quick 20 minute train ride and a 10 minute walk, I was greeted with a view of pretty much nothing :(
The fog was at the same height as the mountain so all I could see was a wall of grey. I had a cup of tea and waited an hour but there was no improvement.
4 hours later I was back in Zurich and still couldn't see the summit of Uetliberg, so check the weather before you go. From the website the view is well worth a trip!

Park Seleger Moor

Reviewed By FormerCaliBoy - Zurich, Switzerland

Seleger Moor can actually be accessed with public transit from the main Zurich train station utilizing train S9 (Affoltern), then transfer to local bus #223 (direction am albis Post) to Seleger Moor. This journey will take about 45 minutes. Also, check the return bus schedule as it only runs every hour. Seleger Moor is open daily from 08-18.00 April through October and entrance fee is 10CHF. Arriving by car, there is a large parking lot. Inside the park there are several places to purchase food & beverages and toilets on premises.
I made my first visit in April and not too many of the plants were blooming so I made it a point to return again, this time in late May. The park in general is very large with paved main trails and side trails lined of wooden mulch. The parks is very nice for a family outing, but keep a close eye on the young ones as there are several larger ponds and creeks on the grounds. The place is a real paradise for the many birds, frogs, and insects you will see and hear along the trails. Take a seat on one of the many benches throughout the park and enjoy the atmosphere.
In my opinion, the prime time of year to visit for the flowers in full bloom would be middle to late May. Also, if you arrive before 09.00 (weekends included) you will most likely have the park to yourself. Allow up to two hours to view the park at a faster pace, more time if you are taking breaks, picnics or lots of photos.

Wildnispark Zurich Langenberg

Reviewed By dbinhou7511 - Houston, Texas

The place exceeded expectations regarding the number of animals available to see. All are typical animals for the area - bear, wolf, boar, deer, marmot. It is a large outdoor zoo. Not the most modern, but a popular spot with locals and a good place to hike. It is free and a short train ride from the city center. It was good to get out of the city and enjoy part of the countryside around Zurich.

Every time you'll receive a chocolate bonbon at the entrance and you have everything from Lindt in one place. There is also a section with second quality goods with small inequalities. Some prices are good, some better.

Park im Gruene

Reviewed By davidneil - Felsham, United Kingdom

We spent a peaceful afternoon here before driving back to England the following day, in the dog days of late August on a beautiful late summer's day.
It had been a stressful time. We were visiting an extremely ill close relative, sadly no longer with us, and this was just a chance to chill out and reflect before we left Switzerland.
When you enter this park, you basically leave a supermarket car park, go under an underpass, enter the park...and suddenly you're in an oasis of peace and calm.
At the end of the park there are stunning views over Lake Zurich from some picnic tables.
There is also a children's play area, a pretty good restaurant/café and a little train, not working on the day we visited. There was also a type of stone monument, not sure what, that could be climbed for more great views of the lake and surrounding countryside.
Just before we left there was a type of giant Go-Kart race between teams of locals that had made their own Karts...all great community fun.
A lovely place to spend our last day on Lake Zurich leaving fond memories of late summer 2016, and of a dear departed relative.

Muri Abbey

Reviewed By semagora - Zurich, Switzerland

The abbey is almost 1'000 years old and really worth visiting. Check the schedule, as there are regular masses or weddings taking place there, so that you do not disturb when visiting. Bring warm clothes - it is cold in there in the winter.

Museum of Art (Kunsthaus Zurich)

This fantastic art museum displays Western works since the 1600s and has an especially impressive selection of modern art.

Reviewed By Ed G - Bethesda, Maryland

Definitely worth a visit for art lovers, particularly of 19th & 20th century art. Spaces and art are beautifully presented in buildings that flow nicely together and within easy walking distance of Limmat in old city. You can easily spend several hours there, including special exhibits.
