Sonnenberg Zurich – A micro-vineyard with a view

relaxing
Relaxing

The view opens up from a terrace, which overlooks a tiny vineyard, the lake, and the city. In addition to this, you can explore the entire silhouette of Zürich’s very own mountain - Uetliberg.

Hidden in the endless streets of private housing in the Hottingen area, lies quite literally a multi-million-franc view (this is the amount you would expect to pay to have a property in the area). The view opens up from a terrace, which overlooks a tiny vineyard, the lake, and the city. In addition to this, you can explore the entire silhouette of Zürich’s very own mountain - Uetliberg, right until it ceases to exist at the southern tip of lake Zürich.

The viewpoint and the park have a very relaxed atmosphere. Locals come here to admire the view for a minute, read a book, or visit a playground with their kids. For a pinch of luxury, you can enjoy the offer from Restaurant Sonnenberg. If you fancy the wine from the very vineyard you are overlooking, ask for Pinot Noir Stadt Zürich aus den Sonnenberg Reden.

To reach the spot, you can take an enjoyable uphill walk through Zürich’s most desired residential area up from the lake. To cut some corners, take a tram until the stop at Römerhof or Klusplatz. If you would like to avoid any ascent, navigate by public transport to the stop Titlisstrasse. Don’t worry if you run out of breath climbing up here on a warm day, one of the hundreds of Zürich’s drinking fountains awaits you there. From this viewpoint head in any direction to discover the eye-pleasing residential architecture of Zürich.

Bar 63 – Fine wine, fine folks

"Bar 63" is such a winner. The best thing about Bar 63 in Zurich is the drink menu in my opinion. Rums and wines are the speciality.
