This zoo is verry diverse! The elephant house is huge and all enclosures are pretty big. Prices are high but verry moderate for Swiss people. Verry nice as a family trip!

One of the best zoos I ever visited. Enclosures are spacious and a lot of thought is invested in the welfare of the animals. The elephant exhibit is a special treat, also do not miss the Masoala rain forest.

Anyone, who enjoys seeing animals and has the time to spend to enjoy seeing them while in Zürich, I highly recommend. It's easily accessible and provides you a nice break for few hours from the busy buzz of the city.

I am not into that activities but really i liked it. It is expensive but worth to pay for it. You will walk inside for around 3 to 4 kms to cover it and may be more.

The zoo has evolved from placing animals in small concrete enclosures to building more realistic habitats for the animals. This process is on-going with some areas to open in 2020.

Hi Three hours are enough time to see the main parts of the zoo Zurich. You have definitely to see the Masoala rainforest and the Kaeng Krachan elephant park. For these two huge enclosures we recommend two hours. If you are... More
