What to do in Zurich?


Swiss National Museum

The museum building of 1898 in the historicist style was built by Gustav Gull in the form of the French Renaissance city chateaus. His impressive architecture with dozens of towers, courts and his astonishing park on an island between the rivers Sihl and Limmat has become one of the main sights of the Old City District of Zurich.

After the 3.8km swim portion, a spectacular bike course (180.2km) leads through the city center and then out of town along the lake shore. Athletes ride along grazing lands, past small villages, and over the rolling countryside of Zurich. The run course (42.2km) takes athletes through downtown Zurich. After passing the town's landmarks and the historic buildings, they will run back along the shores of Lake Zurich.
