Zoological Garden Berlin
Besides petting zoo and commented feeding, Germany's oldest zoo offers more than 20,000 different animals. One of the big highlights in the zoological garden is that hippos can even be observed under water. In addition, a night safari is offered to experience the nocturnal animals in action.

Hagenbeck Zoo in Hamburg
The Hagenbeck Zoo has two big highlights to offer. In the Arctic Ocean, visitors can observe penguins, walruses and polar bears in a near-natural facility at arctic temperatures of seven degrees.

Experience Hannover Zoo
The zoo in Hannover is considered the most family-friendly zoo in Germany and is divided into different theme worlds. For example, the visitor can take a boat through the savannah landscape and get up close to all kinds of animals such as lions, giraffes and co. The Hannover Zoo experience gives the visitor the feeling of being immersed in the animals' habitat and not just marvelling at them from the outside. An unforgettable experience for the whole family!

Cologne Zoo
The Cologne Zoo is one of the oldest zoos in Germany and has the largest elephant house in Europe. In addition there is a rainforest and jungle house with exotic animals. Another unique highlight: butterflies can be experienced up close in the walk-in flight hall of the Insectarium.

Hellabrunn Zoo in Munich
Hellabrunn Zoo differs from other zoos mainly in that the animals are not housed according to species but according to the continents on which they live. A tour through Hellabrunn is a journey through the world where tigers, polar bears and elephants can be marvelled at.
