Family holidays in Switzerland
Why travel to far-off shores when home has so much to offer? Destination Dolder has a wide range of leisure activities and opportunities for rest and relaxation – perfect for families in search of adventure.
Far from the everyday, in idyllic natural surroundings on the Adlisberg, there are countless ways to explore the forest and discover breathtaking views over the city of Zurich, the lake and the Alps. Experience another world high up on the Adlisberg, just six minutes away from the city centre on the Dolderbahn. Families with children will particularly enjoy the nearby Dolder Sports facilities, which include a large outdoor pool, a children’s play area with two paddling pools and a minigolf course for the odd round against the relatives.
