Stay in a hotel in Zürichberg to be within two kilometres of Zurich Zoo. There are seven enclosures – choose from the Australia Exhibit to see koalas and wallabies, or the Mongolian Steppe for camels and yaks.

There are often open-air movies and festivals taking place in the vicinity, and the surrounding area has a number of romantic restaurants and bars.Go for hotels on the left side of Lake Zurich to be in the perfect spot for a cruise around the bays.
