Our service for families

It is very important to us that you have a wonderful visit to the zoo. 
Our zoo is largely barrier-free. An exception is the upper floor of the Exotarium, which can only be reached via a staircase.


Opposite the entrance to the Exotarium you will find our large playground: a place for children to run around without any traffic, with a picnic area, a large sand area and climbing facilities. 

Inclusive toddler play area

An inclusive toddler play area is available on the meadow at Grzimekcamp. On 140 m², children with and without disabilities can get moving together.


Handcarts are available for hire from the ticket office from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in summer and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in winter for a rental fee of €5 and a deposit of €20.


Wheelchairs are available at the ticket office from 9 am - 6 pm in summer and from 9 am - 4 pm in winter for a deposit of €20.

Petting zoo

In the petting zoo you and your children can stroke the dwarf goats. The barrier-free dwarf goat enclosure is open daily.

Interactive information boards

There are many interactive information boards in the zoo - for example in the 'Katzendschungel' (Cats Jungle), at the Seal Cliffs, at the Rhino House, in front of the Exotarium and in the 'Borgori-Wald' (Great Ape House). 

Changing table

You will find a changing table in the toilets directly behind the entrance and in the 'Borgori-Wald' (Great Ape House)
