What to see

FIFA World Football Museum

This is the latest addition to Zurich’s rich museum scene - so now there is actually someplace for football fans to visit in Zurich, the hometown of the International Federation of Association Football FIFA. The museum is located just next to Enge train station, not far from the lake. On three floors and more than 3000 sqm it tells the history of football, the FIFA and the World Cup. On Planet Football on the ground floor, the jerseys of all 209 FIFA member associations are on show in a sort of rainbow - plus a timeline which takes you through the history of FIFA. The second floor of the exhibition is underground. It’s dedicated to the pioneers of football and the World Cup, showing dozens of artefacts of each of the World Cups held since 1920, for example the tracksuit that football's first real star Pelé wore in 1958. And yes, the original FIFA World Cup trophy is on display! The third and last floor is dedicated to the impact football has had and still has on society. And there is a gaming zone with giant pinball machines where you and your kids can show and test your skills with an actual football. All in all an interesting, interactive and contemporary multimedia exhibition. Great for football fans, but definitely not only. Download the museum’s free app which transforms your phone into an interactive audio guide. A bistro, a café-bar, a shop and the Sportsbar 1904 on the ground floor round off the museum.
