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.

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.

We enjoyed a very nice day tour taking the train from Zurich main to Adliswil and Cable Car up to Felsenegg, from there a hike (couple of hours) to Uetliberg and down by train. Going up with Cable car is very nice and opens great views.

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!

Wyden Badi

Reviewed By foodbliss2014 - Zurich, Switzerland

Wyden Badi is a tiny wooden bath with steps leading down to the lake. It also has a tiny little garden. There is a little kiosk selling beautiful freshly made salads and some other simple dishes, including drinks, wine, beer and coffee.
It's the tiny little gem on the lake, mostly known to locals.

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.
