Zurich Zoological Garden, Zurich Reviews

  • The Zurich zoo is great. We have an annual pass which becomes worth it after only 3 or 4 visits. We live 20 minutes (by public transport) from the zoo so it's a great way to fill a morning/afternoon or whole day. The animal enclosures are generous in size (as far as zoos go) and they work continually to improve the different areas. The rainforest is amazing and so is the Elephant house. There is a small petting zoo where you can feed goats. Many restaurants and food stalls are dotted around the zoo grounds or there are plenty of benches with playgrounds close by for picnics. Zurich zoo is worth the visit in my opinion 👍

  • One of the finest zoo I have ever seen in my life. The animals were kept more secure and openly. The zoo is very spacious and amazing. I had a refreshing experience at this place with my loving wife. It was one of our choice to roam around Switzerland without our group and it came out to be the best choice. It was fun and exciting, a wonderful remembrance in our lifetime.

  • Awesome zoo. Definitely plan to spend the whole day! We loved the play grounds. They were great for breaks. Only complaint from my 6 year old son is that he didn't get to see the wolves (his favorite animal). We might have to come back after 2020 when the Lewa Savanna is done. We also loved the peacocks and chickens walking around.

  • I love going to the zoo. It is a perfect place to go on a not too sunny day and only been there with kids but am sure it's also very nice to explore on your own. The new Australia area with the koala bears is really nice. There are also plenty of playgrounds for the kids and prices for food and ice-cream are fair for what you would expect at a zoo in Switzerland. The animals seem good taken care off. Would recommend a visit.

  • Great zoo! Animals are given much more room than in other zoos I've been. They make huge efforts to make animals happy and increase awareness for endangered species. We visit about once a year and there's always something new to discover.
