Airside shopping comprises more than 50 shops. The emphasis is on a good mix of goods rather than on competition. Layout and structure of the shopping areas help create clearly defined theme worlds which target and satisfy the needs and wishes of the various customer groups.

Duty Free: Switzerland continues to enjoy its status as a "duty-free island" within Europe: generously dimensioned duty-free shops serve to complement and complete the range of goods on offer.

FOOD&BEVERAGE:Full-service dining in the North Northwest Italian restaurant and the Far Eastern Asia, or self-service delights at the biggest food court in Switzerland – the culinary range on offer at Zurich Airport leaves virtually nothing to desire. Plus the unique atmosphere of Switzerland’s gateway to the world.

In addition to the restaurants, a large number of cafés, bars and an English pub are just the place for a relaxing drink and interesting encounters. Chances are you will meet a genuine globetrotter there! The observation deck, too, has quite a bit to offer in the culinary department – and the Aviolino on the deck of Dock B offers a special welcome to the youngest airport fans.

Airside or landside – a restaurant, café or bar is never more than a short walk away at Zurich Airport.

Customers who buy goods or eat/drink at our landside Shopping Center enjoy reduced-price parking: the first hour is free, two hours for only 3 Swiss francs. To qualify for this discount a total of 60 Swiss francs must be spent anywhere in the Shopping Center.
