The Comic Trail Uetliberg with Ueli and Uta
The new and exciting Comic Trail is now open in Uetliberg. Uetliberg is the urban escape located just above Zürich offering amazing views of the city including the Lake of Zürich all the way to the Alps. The Comic Trail provides an exciting outdoor adventure for the entire family!
The Comic Trail is a fun concept trail where families must answer clues and riddles throughout the
4.5 km trail. Ueli and Uta are the characters that are with you throughout your journey and they are your guides. They are there to show you around the mountain and provide you with the clues that you are tasked to solve. Once you discover the answer to the riddle, you are required to either submit your answer via mobile phone to receive the next clue, or answer a question to discover a letter which will ultimately help you solve the final riddle.
The hike is relatively easy, provides fantastic panoramic views of the surrounding areas and has two nice playgrounds. Don't forget to pack a picnic lunch to make the most of this outdoor experience.
This hike is a mix of wooded areas and open, scenic trails. There are plenty of opportunities to stop, but your group will be motivated to discover the next clue and will be anxious to keep going!
The trail costs CHF 9.00 per person, or if you are a family of five, the group ticket is CHF 25.00.
