ACTIVITIES

ZOO ZURICH

Zurich Zoo is home to around 375 animal species from six continents in species-appropriate enclosures. This alone makes it one of the five most attractive zoological gardens in Europe. As an internationally renowned nature conservation centre, the zoo provides a safe home for endangered species such as snow leopards, otters and monkeys as part of conservation programmes. The breeding of Galapagos giant tortoises is unique in Europe. Under the motto “Who knows animals, will protect animals”, nature, animals and people come together here in a way that impresses every visitor.

The Uetliberg is a popular local recreation area near Zurich. As the northern end of the Albis mountain range, it rises 870 metres above sea level (Uto Kulm), reaching far above the Zurich districts. Since 2005, the Triemli bike trail has been attracting sportspeople and nature enthusiasts to Zurich: a mountain bike trail that begins at the television tower and – at an altitude difference of 350 metres – leads over 3.5 km to the Triemli SZU station. On foot or by bike: the Üetliberg is always worth a day trip!
