This route is a great option to do some sightseeing while burning some extra calories. You will see several main sights and enjoy the amazing views of the city as you run along river Limmat and around on cobblestone streets of Zurich’s medieval Old Town (Altstadt).

Start your run from main railway station, Hauptbahnhof, located in the old town portion of the city, and head south along elegant Bahnhofstrasse – one of Zurich’s main shopping streets. Pass several sights, including the Urania Observatory, St Peter’s Church, Parade Square (where major Swiss banks have their headquarters), Townhall (Rathaus), Grossmünster, and Gates of Hell – a monumental sculpture located in Kunsthaus.
