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.

“Very nice zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

It's modern, animals have lots of space and it's always a very nice day with the kids when we go there. The Masoala hall is somewhat of a mixed feeling; while it's probably great for animals, kids are usually disapointed because you don't see many of them.

Very worthwhile, in particular for families. Visit in particular the Masoala Hall and the soon to open elephant area.

“A modern Zoo that strives to offer the animals a natural habitat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The Zurich Zoo has undergone tremendous and exciting changes in the past few years. It continuously improves the habitat of its various inhabitants, the newest addition being a completely new section for the elephants, imitating their African Origin.
