If you don’t know where to bring your children this fall, I recommend the animal park in Langnau in Albis. It is beautiful with all the fall leaves!
It was founded in December 1869 by the forest superintendent, Carl Anton Ludwig von Orelli. At the age of 61, he founded the oldest zoo in Switzerland. He lived in a house in the park.
The first animal in the park was the deer. Since more animals can be seen in the 80 hectares of land: wolves, bears, foxes, boars, bisons, Przewalski horses, jackrabbits, elks and much more.
The park was renovated in the fall last year with a new bridge crossing the Albistrasse road, a brand new playground, many new cages and exhibits.
There is a nice carousel, three playgrounds and a cafeteria. When the weather is nice especially in the summer, they grill sausages outside.
Address: Albistrasse 4 in Langnau am Albis
Parking ticket is good for 24 hours and costs 5 CHF.
The entrance to the park is free.
