  • The cemetery is located on the mountain above the city of Zurich. Here is how the graves of famous persons and the public. There is a small chapel. It is interesting to consider the expensive decorations and sculptures on some graves.

  • Now in the summer of 2016 the Ticket price per adult is CHF 26, without discount holders of Swiss Travel Pass. The result is that I didn't visit the zoo, but I found the graveyard immediately next to it is a beautiful garden with different deposits. I chose to walk in the cemetery. I suggest to the administration of the zoo review the pricing policy and consider a percentage discount for those who already purchased the Swiss Travel Pass.
