Zurich Wilderness Park

Local wilderness right on your doorstep

A unique combination of wildlife, wilderness, and natural forest awaits you at two locations in the Zurich Wilderness Park.
In Langenberg, you can observe local wildlife such as lynx, wolves, and bison almost like in the wild in the oldest and largest zoo in Switzerland. In the Sihlwald, the first national nature discovery park, impressive giant trees and deadwood with mushrooms and lichens dominate the primeval forest-like area of wilderness.

In the nature museum at the visitors' centre, a permanent exhibition offers interesting facts about the history of the Sihlwald as a commercial forest and showcases the special features of today's natural forest. The nature museum in Sihlwald is open seasonally from the end of March to the end of October.
