Get to know the typical Swiss nature and fauna up close!
A little outside of Zurich is Switzerland’s oldest zoo, the Langenberg Wilderness Park. Within a very short travel time you are in harmony with animals and nature. Whether for a leisurely stroll, a hike or just experiencing the wilderness adventure, is a great destination for a day trip with kids in Zurich.
There, kids can see and sniff the typical Swiss fauna and flora up close. Despite the proximity to the city, the nature adventure park offers the animals and plants an undisturbed habitat and thus an intact nature.
The Wilderness Park is rightly very proud of the animal husbandry with distinction that it has been able to record for many years. This makes it even more fun to observe the Alpine marmots, deer, elk, lynx and wolves, almost like in the wild. The animals are not forced into small enclosures, but have extensive enclosures in which they can also withdraw and behave as if they were in the wild.
Once the children have seen enough animals, the children’s playground is the perfect contrast to let off steam: a giant hammock invites you to swing and a cable pull for a ride in the breeze. Next to the playground is a family-friendly self-service restaurant with a direct view of the bear enclosure.
From August to October, “WildnisbotInnen” are out and about on beautiful Wednesday and Sunday afternoons. They tell interesting facts about selected animal species.
