Service, contact and arrival

Leave the stresses of life behind and enjoy the natural world high above the city. Hotel UTO KULM is surrounded by nature, so that it is not possible to drive right up to the hotel. Instead, the Uetlibergbahn runs several times an hour from Zurich city centre to the Uetliberg, Zurich’s local mountain. From the Uetliberg terminus, you will reach Hotel UTO KULM after a pleasant seven minute walk through the forest.

  • By car

    You can drive to the Feldermoos parking lot, which is 200 meters in front of the gas station at Birmensdorferstrasse 12 in Uitikon-Waldegg.

    If you’re coming from the Autobahn A4/A3 from the north/west or Basel, Bern, St. Gallen and the Zurich-Kloten airport, take exit 28 Urdorf-Süd, then drive about 4.9 km towards Zurich to get to the Feldermoos parking lot, Birmensdorferstrasse 12, 8142 Uitikon-Waldegg. From there you can take the SZU to the Uetliberg.

    Coming from the Autobahn A4/A3 from the south/east or Zug, Lucerne and Chur, take exit 29 Uitikon, then drive about 3.8 km towards Zurich to the Feldermoos parking lot (PDF).

    Directions from the Feldermoos parking lot:

    1. Pedestrian path seven minutes via nature trail: Cross the pedestrian bridge and take the nature trail through the forest to the Uitikon-Waldegg train station. An SZU train (S10) goes from here to the Uetliberg terminal station every 30 minutes on weekdays and every 20 minutes on weekends.
    2. Ten-minute walk via the paved road: From the parking lot, keep to the right of the street up to the MIGROS / COOP intersection. Use the pedestrian underpass and cross the street. From here, a paved road takes you through the forest to the Uitikon Waldegg train station.
  • By plane

    You land at the airport in Zurich Kloten and then take a train as the best, fastest and simplest transportation here. Up to 22 direct trains travel from here to the Zurich central station each hour. From there, switch to the Sihltal-Zurich-Uetliberg train SZU (S10) on the underground level on track 21/22. On weekdays, the SZU travels to the Uetliberg terminal station every half hour and every 20 minutes on weekends – the ride only takes 20 minutes. You can find the train schedule from the airport to the Uetliberg terminal station online at fahrplan.zvv.ch.

    The UTO KULM Hotel is in a car-free local recreation area – the Uetliberg. There are various parking options in Zurich and the surroundings, but ultimately you can only reach our hotel with the SZU or on foot. A seven-minute walk takes you from the Uetliberg station to the hotel. Upon request, persons with disabilities or the luggage of hotel and seminar guests can be picked up at the Uetliberg station. Please inform us of your arrival time a day in advance.
