Zurich: four group activities

Cycling, e-bikeboards and an alpine challenge are just some of Zurich's tours on offer for groups.

E-Bikeboard tour: Groups of between four and 30 can test their navigation skills with E-Bikeboards, an eco-friendly, electronic scooter, visiting sights including Zurich city and lake, Zurich Dolder, around Lake Greifensee, the international aiport and Zurich-West. 

Alpine challenge: Delegates can spend half a day actively experiencing the customs and traditions of Alpine dwellers, with the event carried out as a team competition, with the "Mountain Dweller of the Day" being crowned at the end of the event. Disciplines can be tailored to each event and include wood sawing, a Swiss quiz, nailing, stone throwing, horseshoe toss, wooden-ski obstacle course, a Swiss family photo, straw artwork, a Swiss rhyme, guessing herbs, and an alpine pantomime. Groups of up to 100 can take part.

Veal feast: Groups of up to 80 can enjoy a leisurely ride on the Forchbahn train from the city up to the idyllic Forch region on the outskirts of Zurich. From here, it is just a short walk along a path lit by flaming torches to the Landgasthof Wassberg, which serves veal specialities.

Lake Constance bike tour: For an active option, this guided cycling day trip goes from Romanshorn in the direction of Stein am Rhein, a total cycling distance of 50km, with other options and longer distances available. The activity is suited to groups of up to 10.
