    Axe-iting Axe-perience
    It was a really nice experience, we were a group of 22 people, which is not easy to manage, but the owners made it entertaining enough. Over 2 hours we practised different ways to throw, held team and individual competitions, and finally we also learned a few (illegal) trickshots. I even made to the hall of fame for calling a killshot! Overall a really good experience to share with friends or coworkers.

    Fun Date Idea
    First time axe throwing, took my partner for his birthday and we had such a fun time. Axtra we’re very welcoming & helped us a lot with tips and tricks. The throwing itself is very generous on time, we had basically the full hour of throwing with games in between, what a fun date and highly recommend if you’re near by.

    💯 My go to indoor activity in Zurich!
    My girlfriends and I had an blast at Axtra! Been there many times now as a go to spot with anyone visiting the city. Especially as the fog and cold rolls into Zurich this is the perfect day or evening activity! Also if there is any hesitation about not having ever done it before don't worry by the end of a hour you will be playing tournaments, games and attempting trick shots. 💯 My go to indoor activity in Zurich! 🌟 The staff was awesome, and they made sure we knew the ropes and stayed safe throughout. The place itself was organized and spacious, which made it a perfect spot for our group outing. 🪓 Throwing axes was a real adrenaline rush, and we got better with each throw, thanks to the staff's help. 🍻 We also grabbed some snacks and drinks, which made the experience all the more enjoyable.

    Axtra fun Birthday!
    We went to Astra for the 1st time with our two teenage boys (16, 14) and dog. The idea of Axe throwing in the middle of Zürich pulled us in, and what a blast! D'arcy and Ian couldn't have been nicer or more fun. We had plenty of warm up time, with lots of instruction. Then the competitions began :) The whole family highly recommends Astra, and thanks again to Astra for making it such a great afternoon!

Took my parents (66 and 67) for a different outing. Both were a little hesitant at the start as they thought it was for "the cool kids". This went away very quickly!! Ian made them feel comfortable right off the bat and after a couple of trials my mum was doing a vicory dance after her first stick! We all came out with a big smile on our faces and a great story to tell our friends. Thank you!

I wish we would have caught that victory dance on camera! Little did they know that they are, "the cool kids!" Please feel free to bring them by whenever they are back in the city! With warm regards, Ian - Team Axtra

Axe throwing is a great group activity and the hosting team does a very good job. We were there with a couple of guys and will surely come back. "Männerabig" threw here and almost rocked the leaderboard... „no pressure🤯“

I went by with some friends just after they opened and had an awesome time, It took me a few throws to get the hang of it but the owner was super helpful so I even managed to get a couple of 5 pointer’s !!

This is a great group activity so I can highly recommend booking with friends. The place is a short bus ride from Oerlikon. I’ll be coming back to get a better high score!

Thank you! We are looking forward to your next visit. Just a small side note, since you've been here we have had a few really good throwers come by and set up our leader board. So the competition is on!

Went here with a group of guys for a bachelor party. We all had a fantastic time! Extremely nice staff, they showed us how to throw the axes properly and even demonstrated some tricks, and also set up a competition for us. Would highly recommend this if you are looking for something fun and different to do in Zurich. I am already looking forward to coming back.

We had a lot of fun doing the axe throwing! Luis our coach created a great atmosphere by cheering and making jokes. We booked the "Whistlepunk" package and learned to throw the axes in different ways, even trickshots or two axes at once, and also did a little competition. We never did axe throwing before, so it was a completely new experience to us and we liked it a lot. In a way it's quite simple and yet very exciting.

I haven't previously never gone axe throwing but have seen videos and pictures from others doing it. It is a lot more fun that you'd ever expect. It's challenging and it takes a couple of minutes to get used to it but as soon as you hit your first bulls eye you're going to be addicted. In a city like Zurich this is a great getaway from life and a great activity to do with a bunch of friends to pass by some time. The host/owner is extremely friendly and patient and a joy to be around. I would highly recommend everyone checking it!

It is definitely a unique experience and fun. However, since only about two wood walls were in a good shape (out of approximately 8) we mainly played on those. The rest of the walls were in a shape that the axes almost couldn‘t stick to the walls since there was almost no wood left/big holes. Definitely should be fixed
