Zoo

Recommended
Admirably located in the green landscape of Zürichberg, this zoo is one of the finest of Europe. The list of species is head-spinning: elephants, rhinoceros, wolves, tigers, gorillas, crocodiles, pink flamingos, penguins, monkeys, giant turtles, reptiles... An enclosure reproduces the natural habitat of animals such as the tapir, ant eater and capybara. Don't miss the elephants' bath time!
