Top 3 City Getaways From Zurich

City trips are a great thing. Zurich is a small city - especially compared to American and Asian metropolises -  and thanks to the many parks and the lake you’ll soon feel at home.  But you know the feeling: sometimes you've just had enough of all the asphalt, the buildings and the packed streets at rush hour. The best thing to do to avoid a city crisis is a short get away for one day. myfriendfromzurich.com has three suggestions for you, which will allow you to clear your head whilst exploring the rural side of Switzerland at the same 

Trip 1: Uetliberg to Adliswil


Panorama From UetlibergWe, the Zurich locals, are very proud of our landmark mountain, the Uetliberg. Compared to the Alps it´s only a hill - but it´s a nice

walk (for the lazy traveller: take s-train Nr. 10 from Zürich HB) up to the summit, at 873m. On clear days you can even see a picturesque view of the Alps. Keen adventurers: continue on to Adliswil (duration: 1’30), take the cable car at Station Felsenegg and travel back to Zurich by train from Adliswil.Top Of Uetliberg, ZurichInfo: www.uetliberg.ch

Trip 2: Regensberg

 

View Of Regensberg

Take a short train and bus ride to Regensberg, stroll through the lovely medieval town and enjoy the view over the rural part of the Zurich region. For the best panoramic views, scale the steep steps of the round bastion. Afterwards, visit Weidmann winery, treat yourself with a glass of wine,or buy a bottle as a souvenir. (Weidmann winery is only open to visitors on Saturdays from 15-17h)

Trip 3: The dripstone caverns in Baar


Grotte BaarIf the hubub of the city gets too much, then the dripstone caves in Baar might be just the place for you. Discover a secret world by wandering through the 6000-year-old rock formations.Grotte Baar 2Without a car it takes some effort to get there – at least an hour's walk through the countryside of central Switzerland. Still the magic of the different shapes and colors of the dripstones is definitely worth it. This is a Guest Post from myfriendfromzurich.com, the independent travel blog.
