Bike holidays in the big city - what sounds unusual, promises great! Because Zurich surprises with a versatile offer for cyclists*innen. Whether on the MTB trails on the Üetliberg, a gravel tour along the Sihl, crisp road rides or an urban tour to the most beautiful corners of Zurich.
Switzerland's largest city, with a good 430 thousand inhabitants, lies directly on the lake. Around the Bahnhofstrasse there is the slightly hectic hustle and bustle of a typical big city. The street is surrounded by stores - a true shopping paradise. But "Züri" is known above all for its cultural diversity and openness, in a few steps you recommend the big city hustle and bustle and discover small Lädeli, quiet squares, coffees and restaurants from around the world.
The small metropolis on the lake
So it can be strolled, for example, in Zurich West around the railroad viaduct and then in the "Mrs. Gerold's garden" into its own small world with bars, art projects and raised beds. Especially in spring and summer, Lake Zurich or the Limmat River entice visitors to take a dip in the water. With Europaallee, a modern trendy quarter has been created right next to the main train station - at the CYCLE WEEK, you can dive right into the world of bicycles here.
A stone's throw to nature
Züri offers everything a big city promises - but Züri can do more: in just a few minutes by bike you leave the big city behind. Zurich's local mountain "Uetliberg" attracts with flowing and rapid mountain bike descents, the Buchenegg East Wall -part of the multi-discipline competition CYCLE HERO - is popular and notorious among roadies, and the ride along the Sihl on a gravel bike awakens the spirit of discovery.
