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.

Under the motto “Who knows animals, will protect animals”, nature, animals and people come together here in a way that impresses every visitor.

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.
