Sport in the city
Switzerland is a sporty country that is well-equipped in sports facilities. Geneva is a paradise for the urban sport of skateboarding and is home to one of Europe's largest skate parks: the 3,000 m² Plainpalais park. Lausanne also has its own skating hotspot in the Bowl de Vidy, a vast open-air leisure centre. Zurich is all about BMXing at the Bike-Park Allmend. Budding and seasoned urban cyclists alike will be in two-wheel heaven as they explore the site's five trails and freestyle space. Swiss cities also make use of their rivers and lakes by offering up a range of water sports. Go boating on Lake Geneva or set off in a pedalo in Lausanne.
