«People who know animals will protect them.» Up above the city of Zurich, spanning a surface of approximately 27 hectares, is Switzerland’s largest and most frequently visited cultural and educational institution: Zoo Zurich. The popular nationwide...more
Zurich Zoo was a positive surprise. Lots of animals to see, and beautiful scenery from the uphill. The place is quite hilly, but accessible. The new elephant area is spectacular, really nice even in bad weather.
Great place to go with small kids. It is big enough to see lots of things and it is also walkable... there is a small train if you don’t want to walk to reach Elephants lodge, which is totally worth seeing. If you come in...More
Very well done zoo that is educational, entertaining and great fun. There are no cages, and that’s a great way to learn about the animals in a freer, protected and secure environment. There are many types of animals, from the rarest to some of the...More
Zurich Zoo is an exceptional zoo, especially since it's a small'ish zoo! The Madagascar exhibit is awesome! The zoo does a great job of providing privacy for the animals, and yet providing the public ways to peek at them without bothering them.
Went to Zurich Zoo 19/08/18.
Lovely tram ride through twisting roads to the top of the hill overlooking the beautiful city of Zurich.Blue skies and warm sunshine made for a great day visiting a nice clean and tidy zoo.Plenty of animals although some were not...More
For me there is always a concern about zoos, whether or not it is good for the animals, or whether it is in fact an out-dated and voyeuristic abuse of the animals contained within. This zoo, like most, claims to have an interest in biodiversity,...More

Not too far out of town with plenty to see and do. The animals look to be happy and the enclosures are large and quite natural in their layout. None of the old style cages. The Madagascan rainforest exhibit is a must see with birds,...More

Hi, I guess it depends on how much you like to walk in the rain from one animal attraction to the next. There are some attractions which take place indoors like the Masoala Halle where you can easily spend 1-2 hours. There is the aquarium, and the elephant house, etc. Like others have written, you probably get more for your money if you go on a non-rainy day. On rainy days, there are not as many people and you will get around much faster and not have to wait. I would probably not go on 'stormy rain' days.
