Places to go

Indoor playgrounds

  • MonkeyTown Horgen – large indoor playground close to the Horgen station. Can get crowded in bad weather.
  • Trampolino – another large playground in Dietikon. Gets even more crowded.
  • Formel Fun - playground in Bülach. Subjectively slightly fewer people than in the previous two.

Jucker Farms

There are three farms around Zurich:

  • Römerhof near the airport
  • Bächlihof near Rapperswil
  • One in Uster overlooking Pfäffikersee

All farms have animals and nice playgrounds, including sandboxes, straw play barns, animals to pet (goats). Very nice restaurants and shops with local produce.

All farms get extremely crowded on days with nice weather, with almost no parking spots.

Tierpark Arth-Goldau

Amazing park wiht many spicies. What makes it really great is the open zone with sika deers and moufflons that can be fed from hands. Animal food can be bought at the entrance  or from vending machines in the park (3 CHF per packet, only accepts 2 and 1 CHF coins). Food has a daily total limit, so it's better to come right to the opening (09:00) on a day with good weather.

In Autumn 2023 the park should open a new entrance with a gift shop, etc.

No so many people during winter and on Christmas week in particular.
