We took the train to the first station, and then climbed to a place not far from the top of the mountain. This is worth it. The view from this highest point is very spectacular. You can not only see the city of Zurich and the Lake District, but also the Berners Alps to the south. Two francs can climb to the top of the watchtower, which is very worthwhile.
Great that you can use the Zurich card to travel by train from Zurich. Stunning views and plenty of path for hikes. I thought that we were really high up, but this mountain is consider on the small side. Bring a picnic, or you could have a meal at the restaurant.
Zurich on the outskirts of jade trey mountain 871 meters above sea level, from there you can look overlooking the town, lakes, until the distant Alps. Personal hiking, train every half hour in Zurich and jade, back and forth from the mountain. You can buy in Zurich tourism to Zurich - terry jade mountain - Albis region scope including tram, bus, train, boat and cable car Ticket (Albis day Ticket).
This is the must visit view spot for clear weather. You can literaly see for miles.
Wonderful view on Zurich and its surroundings. A Must Do if you have nice weather
