Outdoors & Recreation
This tiny urban space erases boundaries between parks, industry, and residential areas. Playgrounds invite your children, while pyramids tease adults. 15 min.
Oerlikon traces back at least to 946, when the village was first mentioned in print. It grew slowly until 1855, when the railway arrived connecting Germany with Zurich. The town industrialized rapidly, and in 1934 merged with Zurich. As offices replaced industry in recent decades, many new parks have been added.
