The zoo is very nice and wonderful for children. Nothing outstanding, however, there are two large projects under construction which in my opinion will take this from average to very good.

We love Zoo and we check Zoo in every country/city we visit on vacations. There are a lot of different animals, attractions (trains, quizzes, playgrounds for children) and places where you can sit down and rest. Various kinds of food provided, including vegetarian.

I don't reall approve of zoos, but as they go, this is one of the best, impeccably clean and attractive, with well-kept animals. A really nice day out, with or without kids!

A great place to spend a day with the family. There are so many things to see and do. A day is not enough to see everything that the Zürich Zoo has. Really a place to come back again and again.
