During this tour we discover “Kreis 5”, Zurich’s former industrial area, which has undergone a remarkable transformation in recent decades. Following “Kreis 5” we cycle to Zurich West, a fast developing and trendy district full of fascinating architecture, restaurants and shops. From Zurich West we cycle along the public path on the “Lettenviadukt” (a former railway viaduct) to the “Lettenareal”. We then cycle leisurely along the Limmat heading to the old town of Zurich, where we will come across some of the town’s landmarks hidden amongst the narrow alleyways.
Throughout the tour we will stop regularly to share historical highlights, anecdotes, information about Zurich’s urban development and tips.
How about a coffee stop at one of the many cafes in Zurich or a quick stop to swim in the river Limmat? Share your ideas with us and we will try to incorporate your group’s individual requests if possible.
