What a question. Of course, it is a good idea.
Sunday is specially good, because you will see Cathay's A340-300, MH B777, SQ B747, in the evening the Air Mauritius A340-300, and not to forget the SR MD-11 and A332 and many others.

I'd suggest you start your day at about 10.00 at the visitors desk. If you want to start earlier, go to the spotting place at the beginning of rwy 14 or 16 to see the birds landing. From the visitor desk, take also a ride on the guided tour with the yellow bus. The highlight is, when he parkes at the crossroad between rwy 10 and 16. The aircraft takes off at some 50-100 m from you away.

After 13.00 or 14.00 (depending on the sun) yiu can visit the Heliport outside the fences. You will have the sun in your back -> better pics.

If you want to see how spotting can be at ZRH, go to:

Any more suggestions or questions?

Regards
Gerardo

Above is a link to the Trip Report of Kaitak. There is much information about spotting in Zurich.

Amir, the best spotting hours are 10am to 3pm. During these hours you'll see most of the big jets. After these hours only tons of narrobodies. The entrance to the spotter terrace is in Terminal B and is marked with "Zuschauer" signs. You'll be able to get very close to the action. The ramp tour that takes you also to the runway intersection commences at the end of terminal B.

hi Amir

of course there is. Beautifull terrace on Terminal B. From there u have good view to all parked planes at the gate, and also a very good look to the
departing planes.
