What was in 1806 a dramatic and catastrophic event for humans, is today a blessing for endangered animal species: the landslide of Goldau. In the area where the landslide took place, the Goldau Nature Park and Zoo offers non-domesticated animals a species-appropriate home in an impressive landscape.
Biggest private zoo in Switzerland, largest chimpanzee enclosure in Switzerland. Barbecue by the romantic pond, pony and camel rides. Watching the show presented in the circus tent, admiring more than 500 animals and having lots of fun at the play facilities will make your visit a delightful experience.
The tropical gardens Papiliorama and Nocturama in Kerzers are home to plants and animals from the tropics. In the Anthropodarium, arthropods are exhibited. The Swiss Butterfly Garden is dedicated to native butterfly species.
Visitors can observe 16 native and formerly native animals like deer, bear, lynx, wolf, wildcat, marmot, hares, elk, wild boar, and the Przewalski horse on 80 hectares.
