Tours and birthdays - Children’s birthdays

For kids only - birthday parties with friends at Basel Zoo.

In spring, summer, autumn or winter, Basel Zoo always makes a fascinating setting for an unforgettable birthday party. Under expert guidance, birthday boys and girls, as well as their family and friends, discover the most diverse animal species.  Children take home with them their many new impressions of the zoo.

Choose one of five topics, each with a variety of species and its own fascinating features. The route does not follow predetermined species, but will be adapted to the latest animal developments, the size of the group and the age of the children, by experienced guides. 

Zvieri (afternoon tea) includes a surprise especially baked for the occasion, chocolate and a drink. We recommend leaving gifts at home so that children can concentrate fully on the zoo programme.

If you would like to know more about the tours we have to offer, please contact us (061 295 35 35, Mon/Wed 9.30 – 12.00 and 14.00 – 16.30 Uhr; Tue/Thu/Fri: 8.00 – 12.00) and we will be happy to help.
