Basel Zoo is a favourite destination and worth a visit at any time of year. The animals enjoy spacious outdoor areas reminiscent of their natural habitats in Australia, Africa and Asia. In the summer, you can take a stroll around the park and in the winter, you can enjoy up-close encounters with the animals in their houses. In the vivarium you will discover a colourful variety of marine animals. A definite highlight is the penguin walk, which takes place in at approx. 11:00 am during the winter, weather permitting.
