Sports

 

With us you have the possibility to practice a lot of sport activities! Here is a non exhaustive list of proposals.

Running

 

Bring your running shoes. We have prepared 6km, 10km and 22km jogging trails starting from our house and going through the nearby woods. 

 

 

Race Ring

 

There is a 400m race ring at Venusstrasse (3min walk) that you can use any time (free access).

 

 

 

Table tennis

 

Outdoor tennis table is also possible at Venusstrasse (3min walk) opposite to the race ring. We provide the rackets and the balls.

 

 

Ice skating

 

The artificial ice rink in Oerlikon is not accessible to public in 2016 :-( In winter time, the Dolder rink will reopen.

 

Swimming 

 

Our favorite 50m swimming pool is  reachable in 3 tram stops and is opened all year round. We provide one free entry pass.

 

 

 

Open-air swimming

 

In the summer time (May 14 - Sept 18), the Bad Allenmoos park is a highlight and less than 1km away from our house! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sailing

 

Public boat rental is not possible on Zurich lake, but we know several rental places at Constance Lake. However a specific license is needed to go sailing there by yourself, therefore you will need a skipper.

 

 

 

SUP

 

SUP is getting very popular on Zurich lake. We tell you where to learn and practice :-)

 

 

 

Bike riding

 

We can provide several routes on where to practice race bike riding OR normal bike riding. One of our favorite track goes to Otelfingen Golf Park (10km one way), continues to Baden (22km one way) and to Aarau (55km one way) with almost no car traffic on the way. From all named destinations, you can come back with the train to Oerlikon station. Further tracks are available on gps-tracks.com.

You can rent bikes for free at the "Züri rollt" stations - we can also provide you our own bikes.

 

 

Golf

 

The Otelfingen Golf Park has its own train station and the train is direct from Oerlikon (15min).

 

 

 

Tennis

 

There are numerous tennis places around our place. We strongly recommend to book your slot on GotCourts in advance.

We are no tennis players so we cannot provide rackets.

 

 

 

Mountain Biking

 

The Uetliberg hill is a famous spot in Zurich for mountain bike riding. But of course all mountains around invite to great MBT tours.

 

 

 

Skiing

 

Skiing is possible all year round in the Alps. The closest ski resorts Flumserberg, Engelberg, Pizol and Elm can be reached within 40-70 min by car, not much longer with the train. In summer skiing is possible of course only on the glaciers, which are a bit further away.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TRX

 

If you prefer doing sports in the guest room, we can provide a TRX suspension trainer. This is recommended only for persons familiar with the system.
