«Shall we give a little party in complete darkness?» Our answer to Virginia Woolf’s question is the «Owl’s Night». Since some people are larks and others are owls. The latter stay awake and enjoy the night, seeing it as a time of day to be active, productive and creative. Look forward to a long, dark night full of programme highlights.

Owl's Night - Guided night-time tour in Tierpark Dählhölzli

When the visitors leave the zoo in the evening, things turn quiet. The animals are left to their own devices. While some settle down for a good night’s rest, others are just starting to wake up. On the guided night-time tour we discover a completely new, no less exciting side to the animal kingdom and observe dancing animals at night.
