New opening hours at Bern Zoo
We are adjusting our opening hours for the Dählhölzli Zoo from November.…
A new pack of wolves is currently forming at Dählhölzli
The young male, who descends from the Bernese wolf pack led by "Amarouk" and "Juliette", has been introduced to a young female wolf from St. Croix in France…
With over 200 animal species in well-structured, spacious enclosures, our animals are dignified ambassadors of their species and help to fascinate people on multiple sensory levels and raise their awareness of nature. The zoo is open 365 days a year and offers space for leopards, snakes, wolves, monkeys, but also native animals between the facilities, as well as for the needs of people: exciting experiences, unique encounters, recreation and enjoyment.
The home of the Bernese bears is the city’s Bern Animal Park, BearPark. Since 2009, the bears have been in the park on the banks of the Aare river, an exclusive location with a view of Bern’s Old City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A small forest, bushes, caves and a large pool next to the river make sure that the bears are comfortable and happy.
