“Very nice zoo”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

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.

“A modern Zoo that strives to offer the animals a natural habitat”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

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.
