The opportunity to be so close to the aircraft is unique worldwide. The planes take off and land just 100 metres away, next to observation terraces B and E. Special binoculars can be used to retrieve information on aircraft and buildings. In addition to the flight operations, the main attraction for children is the mini-airport, complete with tower and large playground.

  • A bus tour takes you right up close to the air traffic.
  • If you’d like to take a look behind the scenes, book a guided tour.

With a bicycle or inline skates, you can travel approximately 16 km around the airport and through one of the largest nature reserves in the Canton of Zurich.
