Buy a cheap tent in Zurich - any ideas?

Hi all - we're looking to buy a cheap 2/3 man tent. Have looked at some in Migros (SportXX), Intersport & Athleticum. We're looking for something ok < 100 CHF.

Know it won't be amazing or good for hitting the alps but all we're looking for is something for a bit of summer / nice weather camping.

Anymore suggestions for shops in Zurich that sell cheap tents?

Thanks
Leah

at the right time you can get them dirt cheap at Ottos.

They had them just over a month ago for 19.99, 29.99, 39.99 depending on the size and quality.

The 29.99 one did perfectly over a heavily rainy weekend openair

Re: Buy a cheap tent in Zurich - any ideas?

I spent two months looking for a decent tent in Zürich, so I can give you good recommendations.

Go to Decathlon, it is located next to the border with Switzerland in France.
Eventually, for us it was the best solution. We bought a tent, two sleeping bags, hiking shoes, and lots of oder outdoors stuff... and YES, it was WORTH the trip.


In Zürich you have an option... get a tent for above 1K chf, which I don't neglect might be high quality but ... 1K
