Opfikon (459 m above sea level) is a municipality in the Zürcher Unterland region. It is located in the Glatttal valley between Kloten and Zurich. The International Zurich Airport (ZRH) extends across the municipal areas of Kloten, Opfikon, Rümlang, Oberglatt and Winkel. Oerlikon is a quarter of the city of Zurich. With Affoltern and Seebach it forms the district 11 of Zurich. Along with Züri-West, Oerlikon in the north of the city is a former industrial quarter and today a fast-growing quarter of Zurich. The west and north of the city are currently the most prospering quarters of Zurich. New high-rises and freshly built parks are witnesses to this continuing development. The studios of Schweizer Fensehen (SF), the national TV station for German and Romansh Switzerland (SRG SSR idée suisse), have been located in the area of Leutschenbach since the 1970ies.
