Zurich

Wildnispark Zürich

Zurich Wildlife Park features two different attractions at two different locations not very far from one another. At Langenberg you'll find wild animals like bears, deer, European bison, otters, beavers, wild boar and many more creatures (in enclosures). All of them are indigenous to Switzerland and can be watched here almost as if they were still in the wild. Seasonal, short guided tours with exciting stories about these animals are also available. The other attraction is Sihlwald, a protected forest which has largely been left to its own devices, so animals and little adventurers feel very much at home here. It's accessible from Sihlwald, where you'll also find a visitor centre, which offers suggestions on where to hike in this wilderness area that's similar to a primeval forest. There's also a nature museum with exhibits on weasels, stoats and otters at the centre (6/3Sfr). Most of the enclosures, the barbecue areas and playgrounds are accessible all the time and have free admission. There are restaurants at both Langenberg and Sihlwald. Get there from Zurich’s main train station with the S4 train (SZU). For Langenberg (enclosures) exit at Wildpark-Höfli. From there it's a 30-minute walk. For Sihlwald (forest and visitor centre) leave the train at Sihlwald (plus a 5-minute walk).
