“The Zurich Zoo is worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

We spent a half-day on a rather quick visit to the Zurich Zoo. We were very impressed with this zoo. The outdoor habitats have a very open feel with few fences between you and the animals. We especially liked the rhinos, tigers, and monkeys. There is also a huge indoor rain forest with a real waterfall.

“Wrap up well in winter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

An impressive zoo which is easily reached by tram from city centre. Most animals have the option of being indoors or outdoors eg. I loved the monkey house. however, the zoo is on top of a hill and can feel exposed on a cold spring day.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

Really a very special place to go. Book a day for it and enjoy a slow walk trough all the theme parks. A really attraction is the "Masola Hall" a real piece of Madagaskar in Zurich.
Prevent to go there by car...often very difficult to get a parking and expensive.
The restaurant in the Zoo is terrible and only good for a quick sandwich or to drink something. Nevertheless they are 2 good restaurants just outside the Zoo.

“A Day Out in Nature”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

I went there with my 8 month old son. Although he didn't understand much, he really enjoyed being outside with children and different sounds of animals. Weather was lovely so we spent 5 hours there. Masoala Rainforest is must see, but it was quite a small place not like on the map and most pats were closed.
It has many restaurants, take away shops and toilets. I had to change my son's diaper twice it was easy though cold because there is no heating in the toilets.
