Dolder Grand and Dolderbahn
While you are in Zurich you can take the Dolderbahn and drive up to the most famous hotel in Zurich with history since 1899 – the Dolder Grand. It has a perfect view of the city but offers a quiet oasis for lunch or a drink on their terrace in summer.

Uetliberg - a city escape within the city
Another hill to conquer either by a short hike or tram ride is Uetliberg. This is a relaxed and recreational place where many “Zurcher” enjoys during the weekend hiking, biking or paragliding or in the winter sledging. There is also a cool Path of the Planets for the kids (suitable for baby strollers of course!). After some sport rewards you in one of the restaurants from Hotel Uto Kulm.

Swim with a dry bag down Limmat
A very popular refreshment during the summer months in Zurich is to put your clothes in a dry bag and swim down the river current.
Note: Please take care if you decide to do so as the river is cold and the current can be strong so it is only for very good swimmers.
As the name implies you can have a nice fondue while sightseeing for 2h Zurich in an oldtimer tram. Whoa! Now we are talking! :)
