“Zurich has always been one of my go-to cities, whether I’m competing or simply taking a break. I’ve had such a memorable time indulging in water sports and also trying mountain biking up to the Uetliberg, Zurich’s home mountain. Zurich was the perfect choice for me because in very little time, I could do a lot as everything is so close by and easily accessible. You can shop, have a great meal, do some city sightseeing and also some adventure. I could never imagine that there is so much nature right in the city itself. You can also make the most of the outdoors, be it on the water or up in the mountains.”
