Count the Money: Teams would find a large bowl of Swiss currency, and would have to count up the total amount that it was valued at. If they counted correctly, the value would return a six-digit value that they could use to open a safe with their next clue.
Run the Numbers: Teams had to run through the streets of Zürich to find three separate two-digit numbers. They had to find the number that was on the side of a metal statue found at the intersection of Sihlstrasse and Bahnhofstrasse, the correct number of marked trees at the Lindenhof, and the total of the numbers of the north clock face of St. Peter's Church. These three numbers would combine into the same six-digit code which would open the safe.
