Flughafen–Glatttal Skate

Flughafen–Glatttal Skate

The entire region around Zurich Airport and the Zurich Unterland, with Glatttal has been superbly developed for skaters. The route has a very smooth surface and is mostly separate from motor traffic.
Zurich Kloten Airport and Glattal are among the «historic» trend-setting regions for inline skaters. Years ago, the region around the military barracks was overrun by skaters at weekends. The new airport company, Unique and municipalities have taken up the trend and created virtually unequalled conditions for skaters.

Zurich Airport is already one of the most popular excursion destinations in Switzerland. The permanently installed vantage points around the airport area are ideal resting places, from which to watch the fascinating aerial arrivals and departures. Equipped with superb facilities, such as refreshment stands and sanitary amenities, Unique offers an ideal environment for families. The available parking lots are safe start and finish areas.

Between Bülach and Glattfelden, the route follows alongside the Glatt, on a fantastic path with barbecue spots, resting places and a beautiful open-air pool at Glattfelden. The Glatttal is also ideal for skating «en famille». It’s recommended to also plan your return journey on skates.
