Albishorn, Hochwacht, Felsenegg and Üetliberg are the names of the best-known vantage points on the Albis chain – conveniently connected to one another with hiking and walking trails.
From Adliswil, just outside Zurich in the Sihl Valley, you get to Felsenegg with the one and only public cableway in canton Zurich, which is part of the Zurich agglomerative transport association. From the restaurant terrace you enjoy sweeping views over the city of Zurich and its lake – and a beautiful sea of lights by night.
Heading south you walk to the Albis Pass, while heading north you arrive on the planet path from Pluto via Neptune, Saturn and the earth to the sun on the Üetliberg (1 meter on land corresponds to 1 million kilometers in the sun system).
