Opfikon - visions become reality

   

The city of Opfikon plans to use its real estate for infrastructure like schoolhouse, sports facilities, etc. Visit the website: www.opfikon.ch

When it came to realizing the visions in Glattpark (Opfikon), there was much talk, many arguments and much debate. Many an idea was developed with deep-felt conviction only to be rejected afterwards. We are now breathing life into some of them, thus seizing the opportunity to grow and to set standards!
