Knie's Children's Zoo – Meeting Place for People and Animals

Knie’s Children's Zoo belongs to Switzerland’s tradition-steeped Knie Circus, and is a popular meeting place for animal lovers of all ages.

Knie’s Children's Zoo in Rapperwil belongs to Switzerland’s tradition-steeped Knie Circus, and is a popular meeting place for people and animals: ton-heavy Asian elephants, inquisitive African miniature goats, and agile squirrel monkeys all guarantee a wealth of fascinating experiences.

A ride on a pony or, for those with a head for heights, a two-humped camel, enables close-up contact to the animal. The very courageous even venture onto an elephant's back. A nostalgic trip on a vintage horse-drawn tram, the pirate ship and the adventure playground also offer plenty of fun.

The elephant park, “Himmapan”, is one of the highlights at Knie's Children's Zoo. It features plenty of space for the animals and a bridge as an ideal viewing-point to observe the elephants below.
