  • This Zoo is more for older kids and grown ups. I like that the compounds are bigger but you need to walk far and have only small spots where you can observe the animals. There are chances that you don't see the animals. For kids this can be frustrating. There should be more options to observe without distracting the animals. Best visit is in the morning when the zoo opens. I recommend to buy the tickets online before arrival. The line at the cashier may be long especially on sunny weekends. I personally don't like the info pavilions which seem to pop up here and there. I can look up information on the internet or go to a museum. In the Zoo I expect to see animals.

  • Latest hit: Koalas and the Australian park. Zoo ideal for a relaxed 3-4 hours in a group with kids as well. A bit of walking comes with it. Zoo offers snacks and water/drinks, not a lot of healthier food though. Parking can be tough on busy days, better use the tram line 6 that goes very close to the entrance.

  • This is our first visit to Zurich zoo and I am comparing this with my previous Zoo visits in India UK and Singapore. Very compact but covers most animals, was expecting Polar Bear and Panda which was a bummer for my Son. But we enjoyed the feeding of elephant and penguin. I will surely come with my son and wife again as this is a good weekend break for us. Just in the heart of city which makes the transport options easier, lot of food options and also many picnic tables which adds to the fun.

  • Small enough to not be overwhelmed but large enough to keep you busy for the better part of the day. Plenty of indoor exhibits for cold/wet days. The penguin parade in the winter is a favorite. We love how the zoo is decorated and the layout of small paths that makes my kid feel like he is exploring the wilderness.

  • Loved going to Zoos since a small boy, Zürich Zoo is very modern, they try very hard to look after their animals. Put good shoes on, lots of walking needed to see everything. Both of my grandchildren love it.
