    Construction work Panterra

    From August 21, 2023 until the spring of 2025, we will be building Panterra – a big cat habitat with a rotation system – on the site of the current enclosures for lions, wolves, tigers, snow leopards and red pandas.

    During the construction works the area around these enclosures is closed. Likewise, no big cats can be seen at Zoo Zurich during this time. The animals have moved to other zoos for the construction period.

    Details of the closed area can be found on the zoo map. Admission prices remain unchanged during the construction period.
