The Zürich Zoologischer Garten (Zürich Zoological Garden) is a zoo located in Zürich, Switzerland. Opened in 1929, it accumulated a collection of 2,200 specimens of 300 species by its seventy-fifth year. It is located on Zürichbergstrasse, on the lower reaches of the Zürichberg in the Fluntern quarter.
One of its popular events is the penguin parade, which is performed daily after noon if the outside temperature is below 10 degrees Celsius.
The zoo is most famous for its successful Asian elephant exhibit, which is inside of a large dome. Guests can even view them from underwater. Zoogoers agree that it is likely the best zoo on Earth for elephants.
