  • We know the Zoo at other times. At the moment is not much see to it is extensively grown and will be so even more attractive. In addition, many tere are keeps a WG. you would have to show bird flu - it also understanding. The novice, the koala bear, we have welcomed the olle Sleepyhead! The Gondwanaland is also always worth watching - even the ride with the ship. You must support zoos generally by a visit and a donation.

  • I have visitors of the Zoo for years and for some years with my husband also Tierparte.Der Zoo, especially many new enclosures for the animals is large and very diverse. There are also various Tageshöhepunke such as for example "the elephant bathing". It is annually continued to work on better conditions for the animals and there are various tours. Earlier when my children were little I was there very often and now I go with family and my grandchildren.
