Ein „tierisch“ schöner Besuch
With an area of just under five hectares, it is one of the smaller scientifically run zoological gardens in Germany, yet a diverse and colourful crowd of around 800 animals in 110 species can be found on the grounds. A wide variety of monkey species, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish can be seen in the warm house. Siberian tigers, cheetahs, fur seals, penguins, flamingos and meerkats can be seen in the park. Large animal feedings are a daily part of the zoo's routine and a highlight for young and old alike. The zoo also offers a wide range of barrier-free services, for example wheelchairs and zoo guides in easy language are available for loan and several times a year there are special events for people with disabilities.
