Basel Zoo – See what conservation is all about

Basel Zoo is a green oasis in the middle

of the city. You can discover around 600

animal species in this unique park landscape.

Founded in 1874, Basel Zoo is one of Europe’s

most traditional zoological gardens. Its focus is

on relaxation, education, conservation and

research. Basel Zoo sees itself as an ambassador

for nature. It wants to bring its visitors

closer to nature and improve their understanding

of man’s relationship with nature. One of its

main attractions is the new ‘Tembea’ elephant

enclosure with its spacious outdoor areas, which

opened to the public in March 2017.

News about the animal population

Information boards with news about the animal population

(e.g. births) are located at both entrances.

Important information

Basel Zoo kindly asks its visitors not to feed the animals under

any circumstances. Providing the right nutrition for around

600 animal species is a science in itself. Visitors who feed

the animals prevent them from receiving a controlled, speciesappropriate

diet and put the animals’ health at risk.

• Out of consideration for the zoo’s inhabitants, no dogs

are allowed.

• The cafeteria, self-service restaurant and à la carte restaurant

offer a wide range of food and drinks at lunchtime and

throughout the day.

• Gifts and souvenirs can be bought in the zoo’s shop.

The zoo is open 365 days a year

• March to April and September to October 8 am to 6 pm

• May to August

8 am to 6.30 pm

• November to February

8 am to 5.30 pm

Please note that the animal houses close 10 minutes before

the stated closing times and payment desks close 1 hour before

the stated closing times.
