The Alexander Guesthouse promotes running sports

Do you enjoy running, but don't know your way around Zurich so well? Choose one of the running routes we have put together for you and explore our beautiful city of Zurich, the Limmat River or the lake on foot. Whether it's a morning run or a leisurely walk in the afternoon. The start of the running course starts directly in front of the Hotel Alexander.

Our running tracks, designed for you, combine the sightseeing of our beautiful city Zurich with running training in a successful way. Our three routes offer valuable variety, and those who want to discover the city will also get their money's worth. Choose between one of the three running tracks. 

- 4km - Riverside; For those who like to run but don't have much time. Choose this running route to walk along the riverbank to the lido "Oberer Letten" and back.

- 5km - Sightseeing; From Hotel Alexander follow the second 5km running route. This route takes you past the most famous sights in Zurich.

- 7km - Hidden Parks; Are you interested in parks, villas and lakes? The third 7km long running route leads from Hotel Alexander to Belvoirpark, Rieterpark and Lake Zurich. After enjoying the Belvoir and Rieter parks, follow the lakeside promenade back to Hotel Alexander.

Simply use the desired route with Google, Strava or download it as a GPX file. Let's go!
