Hiking in Zürich | 蘇黎世行山

June 2017

Day 1

My Europe trip started in Zurich, Switzerland for seven days doing a little project with school. It was the second time i visit Zurich, but the first time was already 20 years ago, when i was three years old so i only remember the swans, zoo and ice cream.

I lived in the Limmat River, about 30 mins walk to HBF (HBF = Hauptbahnhof = Main train station/ SBB CFF FFS is the short form of Swiss Federal Train in German, Italian and French, and Zurich uses Swiss German). There were lots of people hanging around the river because of holiday, many people doing sunbathing and swimming there, so chill.

歐洲之旅由瑞士開始,去左七日,喺度做個小project,有少部份時間都喺學校做野,大部份時間自己周圍行,今次係第二次去Zurich,但係第一次已經係廿年前,三歲,我淨係記得天鵝牛屎雪糕同埋動物園。

Zurich唔係好大,但成為左我其中一個好鍾意既地方,一落地已經覺得各樣野都好好 (except food, 始終口味唔同)機場離市區只有十五分鐘車程,我住既附近係Limmat River,一到埗沖左個涼就出左去行,由Limmat行去HBF大約一個鐘都唔洗,好似半個鐘左右,因為係放假所以河邊好多人,係公眾地方,有擺artwork既地方又有遊水既地方,有人曬太陽甚至行行下會有人跳河,好似好開心咁。

(HBF = Hauptbahnhof = Main train station / Zurich喺德語區,佢地講Swiss German/ 瑞士offical language係德文法文同意大利文,所以搭車成日見到既瑞士鐵路Swiss Federal Railways簡寫 SBB CFF FFS,就係德法意既縮寫)。

其實Zurich好細,好多地方離市中心搭車都係15mins左右。我去既時候岩岩撞正瑞士放假,仲要連放幾日,同其他歐洲國家一樣,好多地方商店都唔會開放,因為好有人性嘛。因為黎緊幾日都無好多時間,所以我一心去登山 (去唔到瑞士啲雪山已經好可惜),登左Zurich最高點,係一個小山 (每次去旅行都要行下當地既山嘛)。

Zurich HBF – Uetliberg

Zurich is not big, people always say everywhere is just 15 mins by train/tram, but the transport fare is not cheap though, i bought Zurichcard for 72 hours/CHF48 (it seems CHF53 now), included all the train and tram in the city, also the cable car in Uetliberg and discount for the ferry.

之前講過Zurich既景點離市中心都係15分鍾車程,係度搭車其實唔平,因為黎7日,所以買左Zurichcard CHF48/72hours (宜家好似CHF53,加價加得幾快),Zurichcard包左tram/train/纜車等等,搭船都有優惠。

      

Uetliberg

It is the highest point in Zurich, not so high and far, take about 15 mins from HBF and just few steps to go up, there is a tower for CHF2, can see the view of Zurich and the lake. I want to take the cable car down in Adliswil, i thought it was closed,  but actually two hours walk.

There is quiet and peace, it was late so only i was walking (i walk very fast), even animals are more than people.

There was no one working in the station, all automatic and it took me to the train station, and just 15 mins back to HBF.

係HBF搭車過去已經唔係山腳,行幾步路就已經上左最高點,上面有個tower係CHF2可以睇到更高同成個city同個湖。

我去之前瑞士同學一直高應該會落雨,同天色麻麻,叫我唔好去 ,但我都係去左,嗰日日頭幾熱,所以我無著褸就出左去。

我既目的地唔止係山頂,我想去搭纜車落山(畢竟Zurichcard唔洗錢嘛),Uetliberg cable car個站係一個叫Adliswil既地方,一路上都有sign,沿途都無咩人,可能晏了,連動物都多過人。

      

Uetliberg – Adliswil

一路上都係田園景色,同市區好大分別,見到一大堆牛同羊既叮叮聲,感覺上方圓百里都無人,依度咁鄉村既景色一啲都唔似離市區咁近。

我原本以為好快就行到去搭纜車,原來好遠 (下圖遠方係個tower),如果我知咁遠同靜應該會早啲黎行。

      

有一家人係附近露營,附近仲有童軍,好幸福既感覺。(遠方落緊雨)

就到纜車既附近

      

纜車站上面係無人的,自己插卡,之後先會有車上黎,成件事好先進。

纜車好快就落到山,再搭train 15mins就返到HBF,山上面有好多唔同既路線,如果早黎應該可以再行遠啲。
