New opening hours at Bern Zoo

Zwei Papageitaucher im Tierpark Bern


We are adjusting our opening hours for the Dählhölzli Zoo from November.

The Dählhölzli Zoo is open 365 days a year. Opening hours will be shortened at off-peak times from 1 November 2022 in order to save resources when guest numbers are low. In return, this will give us more space for special evening events in summer, e.g. in cooperation with the Owl Bistro. Let us surprise you!

The Dählhölzli Zoo will be open for you from 01.11.2022 as follows:

  • from 1 November until the end of February: 09:00 – 16:30* hrs.
  • from 1 March to 31 October: 09:00 – 18:00* hrs.

*the ticket office closes 30 minutes earlier in each case.

By the way: With the facilities on the AareAlps and the BearPark, two thirds of the Bern Zoo are free of charge and can be experienced around the clock, 365 days a year.
