    Frozen - Ice Age Exhibition at the zoo

    From November 1, Zoo Zurich has a few more particularly hairy animals: life-size Ice Age animals will populate the airfield next to the Lewa Savanna over the winter. Here is an overview of what there is to discover and experience.

    What does the last Ice Age have to do with climate change today? We reveal this – and much more – in our special exhibition «Kaltgestellt», which will be on display at the Lewa Savanna airstrip from November 2023 to March 2024.
