Opened in 1937, Augsburg Zoo now contains more than 1,600 animals of 300 species from around the globe. Although it's small, the zoo is home to an impressive variety of creatures, such as white rhinos, Asian and African elephants, and brown bears, which you can observe in their pool through a glass partition. If you're feeling adventurous, you can even ride one of the elephants. After visiting the animals, cool off in one of the dining rooms, where you'll find a buffet and self-service drink machines. Kids will love visiting the petting zoo to pet and brush goats, sheep, ponies, and other gentle animals. The attraction also includes a mini railroad and a playground with natural-wood climbing toys.

  • Our visit to the Zoo of Augsburg is now already a while behind us. Nevertheless, I take the opportunity to share my experiences here. The Zoo has been very accessible and well signposted. There were also sufficient and well at the Zoo parking located. With the tickets to get even a small location map so you can orient themselves well in the Park. The enclosures of animals were very well cared for my taste and it nurses swarmed everywhere around what has a good feeling. Unfortunately, animals are now often left to themselves and have only commercial value. The plants and small playgrounds were also well maintained and for the snack in between there were also several starting points. One point which we liked not as was the State of the toilets.

  • The plant is kept constantly up to date. Fogende projects have been carried out the last few years: new facility for baboons and Red Buffalo, walk-in Kattaanlage, rhino - and Watussistall, Capuchin Aviary and toilet facilities, walk-in free flight aviary, new Reptile House, extension Giraffenhaus and Elephant conditioning (beginning spring 2018). You can satisfy the hunger for small or large in the Zoo restaurant or at the kiosks.
