The Zurich Zoo is located in a lovely hilltop. It is a small zoo but nice for children to visit. It is easily accessible with trams in the city.

If you're under 26, get the student discount! It's very different than American zoos, there are lots of petting zoos within the Zurich zoo, and lots of different animals to see.
