Standing at 2,850 feet above sea level, Zurich's home mountain Uetliberg offers fantastic panoramic views of the city, its lake, the Limmat Valley and the Alps beyond. Several hiking and mountain biking trails lead up the mountain in the summer, many of which are converted into sledding runs in the winter. There is also a Planet Trail, which is a two-hour walk from Uetliberg to Felsenegg and takes you on a tour through a model of the solar system. The mountain is popular during the fall since the summit is above the fog that is usually present this time of year.
