Winter operations: observation decks and bus tours
There’s no chance of hibernation for observation deck B this winter – Visitors can discover the “fascination of flying” throughout the winter season, too. We also offer airport bus tours for visitors on Sundays.
Observation deck B has been open to visitors of all ages for almost two years. This attractive viewing platform is proving incredibly popular with the public. Since it was opened on 1 December 2011, more than 600′000 guests have visited the observation deck at Dock B, making it one of the most popular tourist destinations in Switzerland.
The opening hours for observation deck B and the departure times for bus tours at Zurich Airport will change when we switch to the winter timetable. Observation deck B will be open daily from 09:00 to 18:00 between 27 October 2013 and 29 March 2014. The bus tours will take place on Sundays at 12:00, 13:00, 13:30 and 14:30. Observation deck E will remain closed for the winter months.
It is now possible to enjoy even more fascinating views and insights into airport activities. Zurich Airport has installed three additional flight information pillars so that visitors can find out interesting facts about the aircraft at the various stands around Dock B. Eight new glass display panels in the north, south and west of the observation deck also provide fascinating explanations about aviation procedures at Dock B.
What’s more, new information boards have been erected at various locations around Zurich Airport for plane spotters and visitors.
The Zurich Airport team looks forward to welcoming many visitors.
