Experience Animals - Preserve Nature

Frankfurt Zoo is a green oasis in the middle of the thriving Main metropolis and home to more than 4,500 animals (in about 450 different species!). Here you will find proud African animals next to feisty seals and majestic tigers, right around the corner from cheeky otters. In the Grzimek House day becomes night as you immerse yourself into the secretive animal world of Madagascar. Fishes, sea horses, penguins, snakes and crocodiles all mill around in the Exotarium (aquarium and reptile house). In the Borgori Forest ape house you can encounter our hominid “relatives” in a genuine jungle atmosphere. The Fraport playground invites to romp and play, while the gastronomy areas offer plenty of refreshment. Frankfurt Zoo is more than a place for exciting animal observations or to take time out from day-to-day life. As a modern nature and conservation centre, the zoo offers diverse Information about our environment and shows us what we can do to help protect it. In cooperation with the Frankfurt Zoological Society, the zoo works following the example of the famous animal welfare promoter and former director of Frankfurt Zoo, Professor Dr. Bernhard Grzimek. By the way, our large animal houses make visiting the zoo a pleasure even in inclement weather!
