Get Your Skates on at Zurich AirportZurich, Switzerland

Feel the wind beneath your wings as you scoot around Zurich Airport on a bike or a funky pair of inline skates. The airport hires out gear and helmets to travellers itching to escape outdoors and get the blood flowing back into their legs.

If a red-eye flight has sapped your sense of balance, hire a pair of Nordic walking poles instead and let your feet lead you exploring. If you’d prefer to stay airside, join one of the airport tours, or perhaps treat one of the kids to a birthday party. How many other kids get to have an A380 at their birthday bash, complete with real, live pilots?

You’ll pay between $US12 and US$25 to rent equipment for four hours, depending on what you choose.

When was the last time you went in-line skating?

The equipment is available for hire from the airport’s service centre.
