Spent the day on the observation deck. Entry for the whole day only costs CHF5.00 and re-entry is allowed. Security and bag screening is thorough. There is a wide area on three sides for watching the aircraft ad a large and busy children's play area....More

The ZRH airport is one of my favorites airports, if not the best one I have been in. The observation decks are just nothing short of Uber! You can see your airline and many others taking off and landing, and I remember as a kid,...More

I go very often with my 2 year old daughter and she loves it and I can watch the planes take off. Clean and lots of space. Nearby toilets and restaurant on the platform!

Best is to ask the Swiss Embassy. You should not take a risk. It is Switzerland!
