TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

This must be your ideal choice if you'd like to combine sightseeing in Zürich and keep up your regular training. You will be surprised how diverse this city is with it's busy business center, majestic, old buildings, a perfect harmony between nature and concrete, peaceful lakeside, quick creeks and hidden forest trails.

Our tour starts from one of the most frequented museums of Zürich, the Landesmuseum and continues towards the Old Town up to Lindenhof, a perfect viewpoint down to the city. We won't miss the place where Dadaism started, the Cabaret Voltaire and a hidden secret place of Zürich, the Roman bathhouse either (2000 years old). As Switzerland is known as the country of banks, we can't skip Paradeplatz, the biggest financial hub/center of the city, that evolved from being a pig market back in the 17th century. Those fascinated by impressive magnitude of churches will have the chance to see St. Peter's church, the Fraumünster with it's baroque steeple and the Grossmünster that with its two towers became an iconic sight of Zürich. As we continue towards the Lake of Zürich we'll have a glimpse at the Opera House, the historical Coffee Bar on Bellevue, the Odeon opened in 1911. This was the place where everything happened: not only frivolous nightlife, but important political discussions, artistic movements also had their headquarter here. A lakeside run follows along Zürisee, we will pass along the China garden and just before turning away from the lake there is another point of interest waiting for us: a kinetic sculpture - one of Jean Tinguely's famous wonderfully useless machines, Heureka! Then, not to forget about the training part, we'll gain some elevation and prepare for the next viewpoint. We arrive to a remote forest area that makes you forget you are in Switzerland's busiest city. If Richard Wagner's name sounds familiar to you, you might be interested in the house he lived for a certain period of his life. As we continue we pass by Bohemia, a highly ranked English breakfast and brunch place, the Kunsthaus – the Museum of Modern Arts, and Europe's first state founded University, the University of Zürich, that serves again as a perfect viewpoint down to the city. We will not take the funicular railway down to Central, the Polybahn, as we have another sightseeing point to check: the Liebfrauenkirche, built based on the plan by August Hardegger.

Additional info:
Since this is a private tour, you will define the pace and have plenty of time to take pictures, if you wish so. There will also be multiple drinking water sources and toilets during the run. (please note that fountains might be closed during winter). There is also a possibility to make this tour longer (with more elevation) – we can take the road up from Bohemia towards the Zoo and Dolder trails. Here additional distanced are almost endless.
