Description
It's hard to think of anything more endearing than the waddle of a penguin - and if it's a cold day, the Zurich Zoo will give you an eyeful. Every afternoon that the temperature is below 10 degrees ... Read more
Celsius - which it often is in Zurich - they lead a penguin parade past the adoring crowds. But penguins aren't all you can find at the Zoologischer Garten: the zoo contains some 2,200 animals representing over 260 species from around the globe. If the winter weather has you down, check out the tropical exhibits.

You can tell that the zoo tries very hard to recreate natural habitat's for the animals, case in point is the Masoala Rainforest. This is one of the few zoos that didn't depress me. I hope more zoo go in this direction.

If you're under 25, you get a discount. The entry fee isn't too high, but it isn't cheap either. That being said, it's well worth it. You get really close to the animals and some of the exhibits really integrate you into the enclosure. It's well worth a visit. Their rainforest exhibit is the best I've been to, but it is ~100 Fahrenheit, so beware if your going in winter. Your camera will steam up for a while (try using the hand dryer looking unit outfront before going in to adjust it yo the temperature difference) and you'll want to take off your jacket.

A little bit of everything, and more poison dart frogs than I've ever seen. Two separate penguin exhibits, and all the basics in a just-right sized package. Massive elephant enclosure opening soon will be really nice. There's a petting zoo somewhere across the street - we missed it, but keep your eyes open if you want to make a whole day of it.

My boyfriends mother volunteers here. It's a lovely place to be and is one of the best zoos in the world, a zoo that actually cares and is luxurious for the animals and the people.

Der Zoo Zürich zeichnet sich durch die Artenvielfalt der Tiere, der Grösse des Zoos wie aber auch der verschiedenen Kontinente aus. Einmalig das Elefantenhaus.

Es war wunderschön. Man sollte sich wirklich den ganzen Tag dafür Zeit nehmen. Der Zoo ist riesig und sehr vielseitig eingerichtet.

Sehr schöner Ort um in eine andere Welt abzutauchen. Vorallem die neuen Gehege für die Tiere sehen sehr schöön gerecht aus.
