Swissôtel Zurich Nature Nearby


Nature Nearby

Swissôtel invites you to discover and share nature around our hotels. We’d like guests to help us discover every bird, bug, and plant that makes its home nearby (or is just passing through). With your help we can learn when birds and insects migrate, when flowers bloom, and when trees sprout new leaves and lose old ones. By recording your observations on iNaturalist, you become a citizen scientist contributing important data that helps scientists understand life on earth and how it’s adapting to climate change. Your observations will be monitored by the Alpine Institute at the Leysin American School in Switzerland, which coordinates with professional scientists to study our world.

View species already observed in Zurich Oerlikon on iNaturalist. Here you can see a guide to what’s already been discovered in the neighborhood. Add your observations to provide more data for a deeper understanding of urban ecology.

Visit the Swissôtel Zurich Nearby Nature Project on iNaturalist. Here you can join the project as a citizen scientist by sharing YOUR observations alongside those of other guests, staff, and friends of Swissôtel and Zurich.
