Made sure to stop and visit the Zoo. Was very nice, lots of walking, but able to get up close and see the animals really well. Gift shop and cafe very good too.

In the past couple of years they invested a lot in renovating or building new which makes the Zoo much more attractive .. and they are not finished yet. It as perfect place for a day with kids (and adults) ..

We were in Zurich Zoo in February 2017. The Zoo is very poor: there are no many interesting animals. I was in lot of Zoo in Europe, but this Zoo is worst I've ever seen.

A great day out at the zoo! Very well kept. There was an area like a big tent with lemurs swinging around you. Was lovely to be so close to them!
