Knie’s Kinderzoo has been one of Switzerland's most popular family holiday destinations for over five decades. We are constantly developing sophisticated new concepts and features for our zoo, as well as building new facilities reflecting the latest advances in zoo animal care. The habitats in our zoo provide environments perfectly suited to the needs of over 400 individual animals.
By popular request, you can now build an even closer relationship with the animals at Knie’s Kinderzoo with our animal sponsorships.
