We visited Zoo Zurich on a whim and it was really easy to purchase a ticket online to scan for entry when we arrived later on. From the map, it looks like the place is easily covered but due to the terrain, some areas are...More

Zoo Zurich was a fun experience - yet there are a few points that could be better. All in all it’s a great zoo, but it wasn’t very clean on the day we were there and most of the trash cans were full and swarming...More

We visited as a family with young adults. We enjoyed getting very close to several animals. We spent 4 hours and still didn’t see it all. We liked the “human geography” component with the furnished huts nestled in among the animals that we could peek...More

I visited the Zoos of London, Berlin, Vienna, New York. But the Zoo of Zurich certainly doesn't have to fear comparison. Most Animals have modern zoo enclosures, especially the elephants. The Masoala Hall, a rain forest environment, is very beautiful (and hot [35 °C]).

Take the no 6 tram just outside HBF to Reach there. Lovely place - good walk - nice variety of animals - restaurants and restrooms all around. Kids enjoyed.

A great way to spend 4 hours with the kids. Lots of animals to see and plenty of walking to tire the kids out!

You could do both. Depending on the weekday when you are going to visit the zoo Zurich it may make sense to buy it online to avoid to queue at the entrance.

Hi, I guess it depends on how much you like to walk in the rain from one animal attraction to the next. There are some attractions which take place indoors like the Masoala Halle where you can easily spend 1-2 hours. There... More
