We decided to visit the Wildnispark in a rainy day. It was fantastic. Not too crowded. We saw a lot of animals and also a group of wolfs!!! Our son was delighted from the autumnal vegetation. It was a real dreamy atmosphere. We decided to have lunch at the restaurant. This was the only negative experience. The food prepared without... More

Although going to a zoo is nice, Wildnispark Zürich is a next level for watching animals. They live on much bigger space, so it is more like in natural conditions. The place is located in a forest, and you can stay there for the whole day - walking around or making a BBQ. There is also a playground for children... More

A very pleasant way to go for a walk with the family while enjoying the flora and fauna. There is also a basic restaurant / kiosk onsite.

Right outside of the city & easily accessible by car or train there is an amazing outdoor wildlife park/nature reserve and entry is free. Get to see the bears, wolves, deer and even mice in a great area for walking & hiking.

Best for families with young children, it is for anyone who wants to have the chance to see animals in an environment which is closer to their own habitat and less invasive for them.

Despite how close this is to Zurich, this park is very quiet during the week. This not because it is a low quality location, it has a good range of native species that are housed in a pleasant location. I went with my 2yo daughter, but this park is suitable for all ages. Wolves, bears, deer, moose, as well as... More

I love this place and like going there especially in winter when it is less crowded or at least most of the time. I brought my daughter there many years ago and it holds a special magic. I like to look at the bears when there are out in the open and the wolves when they are close to the... More

Absolutely brilliant visit to the wildlife park. I love the setting that the animals are in - they have plenty of room. Saw loads of animals including bears and wolves - which made the trip well worth it. It wasnt crowded at all and well spaced out. Iw ould highly recommend visiting if in Zurich, its just a short train... More

We took the train and would through the back woods -- a somewhat steep hill to climb at parts with a stroller and toddler in tow but we made it. Lunch was surprisingly good --- fresh mozzarella and tomato. Kids enjoyed seeing the animals, especially the bears! Easy walk back to bus stop from main entrance.
