This trail is one of 67 wheelchair accessible trails across Switzerland described on the Mobility International Switzerland website:This high-level route leads over the popular Üetliberg to Buchenegg affording surprising, breathtaking views of Zurich city, Zurichsee lake and even the Alps. At the same time, it is an oasis of peace in wonderful natural surroundings.Everyone here knows the Üetliberg. It is one of the most popular excursion destinations in the region. It towers majestically over the city of Zurich and from it’s summit you have breathtaking panoramic views across the region. It is particularly popular in autumn, when the summit is often above the blanket of fog. The departure point is the summit of the Üetliberg. Having reached the top it’s well worth making a detour to the vantage terrace at the Restaurant Uto Kulm. The panoramic views are magnificent. Then the route follows the Planetenweg (Planet Trail), so named because interesting facts on our solar system are provided at points along the entire route. The route leads mostly along the edge of the forest. You make your way along high above the roof tops with fascinating views of the surrounding nature. The glistening lake below is as much a companion as the mountain backdrop. A picturesque scene, which continues to Buchenegg.
