  • What a great place to visit, with or without kids. It's a beautiful space, lovely activities. The animals look well taken care of.

  • It's hard find all animals, but really nice park. You can go for all day with nice ice cream. Elephants are cuties

  • Always nice to visit! Big areas for the animals which is nice to see, although one of the restaurants (in the tropical climate area) food was not as good as the others outside eating kiosks it was still a nice day.

  • Zurich Zoo, perfect for small children and parents with no wish walk for hours. Friendly staff. My 7 year daughter enjoyed it, it's not very large compared to other well-known zoos, but is well laid out and maintained. My favorite was seeing the elephant's...

  • For a person like me that doesn't like the idea of a zoo was a surprise to see that this place is incredibly well-finished, with a specific area for every kind of animal. Better to go early, you need time to see the whole park even because you'll take some time to rest. Worth it!
