Discover Switzerland at Zurich Airport
You can discover Switzerland at Zurich Airport with fresh eyes and immerse yourself in our innovative traditions from 30 May until 4 August 2019.
What makes Switzerland so special as a global destination? Its unique contrasts. It's a country in which idyllic countryside and true urban spaces are peaceful neighbours, craftsmanship and cutting-edge technologies have always existed side by side, and innovation and tradition are not mutually exclusive. How else could both a revolutionary lightweight running shoe and a pocket knife be typical of Switzerland? Or opposites such as Dada and the art of Ferdinand Hodler figure among Switzerland’s iconic cultural assets?
Encounter the special features of Switzerland in various exhibitions at Airport Shopping and the Airside Center.
National holiday on 1 August
And could anywhere be more suitable for celebrating Switzerland on 1 August than the place where the Swiss cross is more evident than anywhere else in the country? Aircraft with the red-and-white emblem on the tailfin take off and land every minute at Zurich Airport. Enjoy the view at the 1 August brunch on the observation deck with music provided by a DJ. You can also demonstrate your skill on the cow-milking simulator. Children are also catered for: paper, paint and scissors will be available for crafting lanterns. And anyone seeking a challenge on the national holiday can take part in our Best of Switzerland Challenge at Airport Shopping.
