Awesome playgrounds with some shade inside the zoo. Could have spent way more time if we had it! Very clean and better than any zoo in the US that I’ve seen with maybe the exception of San Diego and the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

When we went there, most animals were not there or very lazy sitting dow and very far away. Not recommended at all.

Went there with my 11 year old grand daughter. Before we got there she said she didn’t much like zoos. Afterwards she said she still didn’t like the idea of animals in captivity but the animals there seemed to be more than OK with it....More

Zurich Zoo is interesting! The reason is say this is because it has many animal species that at least we hadn’t seen in Asia, and therefore it made the place interesting! Animal interactions weren’t there (like feeding or interaction! by visitors) , may be those...More

You could do both. Depending on the weekday when you are going to visit the zoo Zurich it may make sense to buy it online to avoid to queue at the entrance.
