It is one of the few zoo I have visited recently where you really see that they care about the animals, to provide them the best enclosure as close as possible to their original wildlife habitat

This place is built in jungle alongside the river. Just a 10 min ride and you can watch some animals in this habitat.

Part of the park is free to access, so it's a nice free activity near the Aare river for the family. There is a fee to see the majority of the zoo, which is worth it. The monkeys and fish kept our little guy busy...More

The "Tierpark Dählhölzli" now called Zoo, is not a big Zoo and has only few exotic animals - but it offers lovely walks, interesting information about the kept animals and I think it is not only nice for kids, but also for parents or grandparents....More

Great little zoo- the rainforest building was very cool. We especially loved the squirrel monkey exhibit with the abandoned cabana built in- really unique exhibit. This place is small but there is lots to see and the exhibits are really spacious and nice. The walk...More

If we lived in Bern, this would be a place we would visit regularly. The environment for inhabitants seems well planned and sensitive to their needs. Educational info accompanied most exhibits. Some exhibits required climbing. Many could be accessed simply walking along paths at river...More
