Basel Zoo

Recommended
In the heart of the city, this huge animal park with an international reputation has become specialised in the reproduction of threatened species. An area is devoted to young animals, another to the vivarium. There are picnic areas, restaurants and games for children available to the public, who particularly appreciate the attractions of the wild animals' and sea-lions' meals, and the introduction to the elephants.
