The Üetliberg (also spelled Uetliberg) is a mountain in the Swiss plateau, part of the Albis chain, rising to 869 m (2851 ft). The Uetliberg offers a panoramic view of the entire city of Zurich and the Lake of Zurich. There is also a hotel in the name of "Uto Kulm" on this small mountain. The two towers on the mountain are a look-out tower (rebuilt 1990) and the Uetliberg TV-tower (186 m, rebuilt 1990). The summit is easily accessible by train from Zurich.
Uetliberg station lies some 650 m (2,130 ft) from, and 56 m (184 ft) below, the summit of the Üetliberg. It is the terminus of the Uetliberg railway line, and is linked to Zürich Hauptbahnhof by S-Bahn Zürich service S10. Trains usually run every half-hour, taking 20 minutes.
