I had the chance to visit many zoo around the world and I must say that this one is a good one! The variety of animals is huge... An adult will pay 26 Swiss francs to enter.

We loved this zoo. We are avid zoo goers in the US as well. This is a large zoo with a ton of hills. Bring plenty of water and hiking shoes. Loved all the animal exhibits particularly the elephants, lions, koala bears and peacocks.

I visited this zoo with a group from the hospital - we had free admission. There are always alot of people on a nice day and on weekends. But the animals there are really cool.
