10 km Jogging Route in Zurich

Joggers can breathe in clean, fresh forest air on this fabulous woodland jogging trail high above the city.

Fancy jogging through Zurich’s verdant woodlands high above the city? No problem – thanks to the 10 km (approx. 6 mile) route, suggested by On Running, starting at Zurich Zoo.

Route on Komoot

The route begins directly in front of the main entrance to the zoo – initially on an asphalt surface as far as the “Zoo Zürich” tram stop. It then turns left into Dreiwiesenstrasse and past the main FIFA building. After an intersection in the middle of the woods, a forest path soon takes you along a short wooded section directly to the sports grounds of the luxury hotel, The Dolder Grand. Now you need to find Hirslanderbergstrasse, which makes a big arc through the woods to the Loorenkopf observation tower. The climb to the top is well worthwhile, for on a clear day you can enjoy a lovely view as far as Lake Zurich. The final spurt takes in a pretty forest trail, which leads back to Zurich Zoo.
