Visiting the zoo

The Dählhölzli-Zoo is closed!

Due to the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, the closure of the Dählhölzli-Zoo and the Dählhölzli-Kinderzoo is necessary for your safety as well as the safety of the staff until further notice.
We also strongly advise against visiting the area of the zoo, which is freely accessible, for the sake of general safety. However, if you do take a short walk there, the federal instructions on social distancing apply and group sizes should be limited to a maximum of 5.

Many thanks for your Understanding!

Visitors watch the agile squirrel monkeys with fascination.

About a half of the Dählhölzli is freely accessible or visible, for example the enclosures along the Aare river, the childrens' zoo and the lynx park, the wisent forest, and also the grouse and flamingo enclosures.

But if you wish to visit the vivarium or the species that live beyond it, such as the brown bear, leopard, wolf, elk, the seal, muskox and many others, or if you feel like a walk over the footbridge into the wisent forest, you will have to pay to get into the Dählholzli zoo at the entrance to the vivarium.

We're looking forward to your visit!
