The headquarters of FIFA (German: FIFA-Hauptquartier) is a distinctive complex in Zürich. The complex has served as the official headquarters of FIFA since its completion in 2006. It is located on the Zürichberg, a wooded hill in District 7.As well as offices, the complex includes a fitness centre, a meditation room, geographically themed parks and a full-size international football pitch.The main building has only two upper levels, but five underground levels, resulting in two thirds of the headquarters lying underground. "Places where people make decisions should only contain indirect light," said Sepp Blatter, "because the light should come from the people themselves who are assembled there."

  • Which Sports Federation can afford to entertain a football field at Zürich's most expensive mountain to a larger facility including? Correct the FIFA. A great, impressive plant. Not publicly. I had to take a closer look at a leadership opportunity. For Europeans being ostentatious, for Africans and South Americans rather modestly. Finally it's the headquarters of the world's largest sports association.

  • Great design building in the Park, which I visited several times, starting with the presentation open ago. several levels down, many iconic items-cups and balls, new building in which FIFA now sits, was built in 2007 year the Swiss architect Tilloj Teus and is actually a complex. Complex includes fitness center, meditation room, theme parks and international polnorazmernyoe football field. The building has only 2 floors due to restrictions under the laws of Switzerland, in the Park area prohibited to build skyscrapers and 5 levels down. A mandatory place to visit all football lovers

  • The visit was just outside the headquarters of Fifa, a nice area, good photos, but stop there. Just a football field surrounded by the flags of each Member nation.

Where to stay in Zurich

As the financial hub of the country, it shouldn't come as a surprise that staying in Zurich usually comes at a price. The city puts emphasis on its glamorous four- and five-star hotels and international chains that appeal to traveling professionals. There a handful of hostels and guesthouses for the budget-conscious traveler. When staying in Zurich, you'll find that the majority of the accommodation offerings are in close proximity to the city core, either on the left or right bank. The left bank is the glitzier of the two, with its grand restaurants, shops, and proximity to the banks and train station. The right side, as home to the Old Town, charms with its historical atmosphere. Here you'll find independently owned boutique hotels and some mid-range options. The city also sports several hotels geared toward wellness, with spas and saunas. These tend to be pricey too, but you're guaranteed a truly relaxing retreat.
