When in Zurich and wanting to explore something off the beaten track, I would definitely recommend this walk. Firstly, it is nice to get here, the Uetliberg, which is one of the hills overlooking Zurich. You get a little train which climbs through the woods...More

Make this trip on a clear day, but be sure you wear comfortable walking shoes. The walk to the end takes about 3 1/2 hours with a few hills. But, before you walk all the way to Pluto, check to make sure the cable car...More
