Ice Skate Sharpening? [Zurich]

I noticed the last time I was out on the ice, my skates need a good sharpen, and I've searched around a bit, but haven't anything really on where is a good spot to get them sharpened in the Zurich area.

I haven't gone to the rinks here, only some frozen lakes (Ones where this is allowed. I'm not dumb enough to go on unsafe ones). Do the rinks have good sharpeners? I'm a bit wary of that as well, as I've had some truly horrible sharpening at rinkside shops.

So, if anyone knows a reasonable place to have skates sharpened, I'd appreciate that.

Skatesharpening is around 10 chf.

In Oerlikon, you can sharpen your skates here:

In Kloten and in Embrach, you can sharpen in Ochsner Pro Shop.

There must be other places, but I've been to these ones.

Re: Ice Skate Sharpening? [Zurich]

I bought some skates yesterday at an Athleticum in VS and had them sharpened. They were using an automatic machine. The skates were very sharp.

You might want to check Athleticum in the Zurich area.

Here is the link to the store locations:

I would think that most sports shops that have skates for sale would be able to offer service/sharpening, much in the same way they offer ski service.

Re: Ice Skate Sharpening? [Zurich]

All the rinks will have sharpeners.

I was told to go to Oerlikon though for a professional job---when I was actually playing hockey.

My orginal job was done at Migro Sport, but I assume even Landesmuseum will have a sharpener if they are renting out skates.
