Owner description: The Zürich Zoo, situated on a hillside away from downtown, is excellent. It’s compact, tree-filled and has about 2,000 animals from 250 different species. There are tropical rainforests and an enormous biosphere. The fascinating Madagascar pavilion and the elephant house are worth a look. Open daily.

“Great time at the zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We really enjoyed our time here. And moreso junior. Lots to see and do, the weather was excellent cold but the sun shone and the Masoala Rainforest was superb. We spent 3 hours here but could have stayed longer but we had other appointment. The tram ride to the zoo from Enge was fun and all in all very accessible with lots of animals to visit.

“Great place, a very good zoo in Switzerland”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

There are a lots of animals, but not a lots of place, especially for the elephants, but they build a new place. But it's a beautiful place for the kids and to take photos...

You could easily spend a day there! Walking in the "Masoala Rainforest" section is superb! Easily reached by tram from city centre. A real experience one shoudn't miss!

“Expensive, but nice zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Many of the animal enclosures are big & new. But the main reason my kids love this Zoo is because they have put in a few really nice playgrounds in it: seilbahns (ziplines), huge spider net to climb in, etc.
