Special-Trip "Airport"

Experience Zürich North and the largest Swiss airport from a totally different perspective. Come with us on an unforgettable and interesting tour with the innovative Segway PT!

This unique tour starts at the Swissôtel Zürich-Oerlikon and takes us first of all to the centre of Oerlikon. We show you the most beautiful parks and the most interesting buildings such as the Hallenstadion, Messe and Offene Rennbahn which form an impressive scenery.

We reach the airport Zürich after a short drive through Opfikon and Glattbrugg. At our first stop at the end of the Runway 16/34 we are wowed by the firsthand experience of takeoffs and landings of Airbusses, Boeings and other airplanes. Afterwards, we drive along the airport to the Heliport whilst receiving information from our guide about airport operations using radio transmission. Get enthralled by our aviation experts as well as the combination of the innovative Segway PT technology and close aeronautics!

Our return journey leads us to a small elevation close to the airport from where we enjoy the magnificent view of the extensive airfield. From here we drive to Seebach and back to the Swissôtel Zürich-Oerlikon where this tour ends after 2.5 hours.
