The Uetliberg is one of the most popular activities in Zurich. Its called the House-mountain of the city because you have the most amazing view over the city, the surroundings and the lake. On clear days you can even see the mountain ranges in the back.
How to get there: You can either start your hike up at Tram Stop Albisguetli or at Triemli. From both places it takes around 1.5 hours to go up. It can be steep at some parts but its very doable. I recommend the time before sunset, the views are the best then.
Tip: If you dont wanna hike up or you dont have mucht time, you can also take the train almost to the top. Its the S10 departing either at Zurich Main Station or at Triemli. Get off at Uetliberg and then its only a 10min walk to the top.
