Intro

The zoo on the Zürichberg is home to more than 340 animal species in near-natural habitats. About 4,000 animals serve as ambassadors for their fellows in the wild. A nature conservation centre involved in international breeding programmes and resettlement projects – that's what Zurich Zoo is all about.

From the Himalayas and South American grasslands to the Masoala Rainforest hall and the Kaeng Krachan Elephant Park, ecosystems have been created here to allow the animals – including endangered species – to roam free over wide areas A petting zoo also enables close contact between people and native livestock as well as domesticated animals.

In the middle of the 20th century, under the management of zoo director Heini Hediger, who invented information panels and mixed keeping of animals, the zoo became one of the first scientifically run zoological gardens. To this day, Zurich Zoo continues to be actively involved in nature conservancy and in international breeding programs.

Venue

At Zurich Zoo, the wild animals reflect the diversity, beauty and fragility of nature. We offer a range of unique locations for cocktails, flying dinners and banquets as a perfect addition to your guided tour. Cocktails can be held at the Lion House, near the penguin enclosure, Elephant House or Capuchin Monkey House. There are seminar rooms available for hire in the compound as well.
