Paris Zoo rates

Online ticket reservation

We recommend that you buy your tickets in advance, as the Paris Zoological Park is one of the favourite places to spend the day for many families in the Ile de France region, especially on Wednesdays, weekends, and during school holidays.


If you want to avoid an endless queue at the tills or automatic turnstiles, get a fast-track ticket! The online ticket service Tiqets, for example, allows you to reserve your tickets for the date of your choice and to receive them instantly, at no extra cost. Then you can print them out or download them to your smartphone and show them at the entrance on the day of your visit.
