what is urban axe throwing?

Axecellent question!

What is Axtra – Urban Axe Throwing?

A competitve sport where we use throwing axes to help release your inner viking! We are the only Urban Axe throwing range located in Oerlikon Züri and we are proudly the #1 ranked game on Tripadvisor! Why you might ask? Because we show you to throw like no one else. We are the perfect event for teams, birthday, bachelor/ette parties or a night out with friends.

I’ve never thrown an axe, can I do it?

Absolutely! We are axeperts at teaching beginners to throw and have a 99% success rate. The youngest we’ve taught is 12, the oldest was 77.

Is it safe?

Yes! As long as you follow our coaches instructions, you will be perfectly fine. The first thing we cover is safety and make sure that we offer a comfortable environment for everyone.

The founder of this crazy place. Thought that getting a tattoo from a friend at 1:30 in the morning at his sisters apartment was a good idea. It wasn't.

Frequently axed questions

axtra info

What is included in a session?

All sessions include a safety briefing and introduction. We then show two different types of throws, a few games depending on how many players there are and how they are performing and finish off with some trick shots if there is time. The two hour session is only available for groups bigger than 25 players.

I am not sure which session is the right one for my group.

We have an easy breakdown for that! (All of our packages are beginner friendly)

We are 1 or 2 more players than I originally booked for, what do I do?

1 or 2 additional players is not a problem (more players = more Axe-citing ;D) We can easily adjust as long as you let us know in advance. The best way to do this is to email us, info@axtrazh.ch with the increase in the number of players and we will book you in!


What do I need to bring?

CLOSED TOED SHOES! This is our only requirement. Also a shirt that fits loosely is a good idea as you will be moving your arms a lot. Last but not least, game face!


Can I just come by whenever to throw?

We are only open for service when you have reserved on our website so we do not time for walk ins. Our bookings are open everyday from 12:00 – 21:00 If you book, we’ll be there!


What’s the best way to get to you?

You can take the 14 tram to Salerstige, from there it’s a two-minute walk. Or you can take the train to Oerlikon train station and it’s a chill 10-minute walk. WE DO NOT HAVE PARKING BECAUSE THIS IS ZÜRICH. We are located on the right side of Schintzlehaus.


What if I want to book outside of your opening hours/ the slot I want isn’t avaible anymore?

We always try to be as flexible as possible with our customers. If you have a group booking or speical request, please write us here, info@axtrazh.ch


Sweet, can we come to throw axes drunk?

ABSOLUTELY NOT! We take safety very seriously at Axtra. If you plan on drinking you can do it after the session. We reserve the right to refuse anyone service who is under the influence or suspected to be or any sort of drug or alcohol. No exceptions.


Who is axe throwing for?

Everyone! You just need to have the strength to throw an axe. We do have one exception to this rule is that our space is not wheelchair accessible. Our next space will be, promise!


Are kids allowed?

Children ages 12 and up are allowed and must have a guardian present (must be older than 18). Please note we do not have the facilities for babysitting so we cannot allow unattended children into the space.


Can I bring my dog?

We love dogs and have them in the space often. However, they must be well behaved. Excessive barking makes it hard to give good instructions.
