Zoo Zurich & Masoala Rainforest – a Trip to the Animal Kingdom

Zürich. Your sustainable city trip.

Gorillas, elephants, penguins and more – at the Zurich Zoo you meet animals from all over the world and can learn about the different species and their care.

Observe the snow leopards in their rocky Himalayan landscape, watch the spectacled bears climbing in their misty mountain world and admire the giant turtles swimming in the Masoala Rainforest. At the Zurich Zoo you can walk from the high mountains of Asia over the forests of South America and deep into the rainforest of Madagascar to meet the different inhabitants.

The Masoala Rainforest is a highlight for all visitors to the Zoo: Year-round you enjoy tropical warmth inside. A path also leads through the treetops and offers a prime view of the canopy of leaves and the lemurs, flying foxes and birds that live here.
