"Zoological Gardens" Bern Things to Do Tip by aliante1981

Bern Things to Do: 333 reviews and 660 photos

Zoological gardens - or, quite simply, the zoo - are uniquely situated in a forest on the shores of the River Aare. Main theme of the zoo is the European fauna: animals such as otter, musk ox, lynx, wolf; bison, elk, reindeer, ibis, and, of course, bear (just to remind - they are the symbols of Bern) abound. For those wishing for something more exotic, there is a tropical vivarium which houses basilisks, tropical lizards, free-flying butterflies and other fauna from southern, warmer lands.
