Hagenbeck’s Zoo

Hamburg’s number one zoo is still owned by the original family and is maintained without state funding. All costs are covered by admission fees. One more reason to visit Hagenbecks. You can marvel at baby animals almost all year round, but even if there is no offspring in the enclosures, there is still a lot to see. There are over 210 species living at Hagenbeck Zoo and more arrive all the time.

For some time now the Tropical Aquarium has been a fixed feature of the zoo, and visitors are greeted at the entrance by colourful parrots and little ring-tailed lemurs. These monkeys are diurnal and can even be petted. The exhibition continues from the Madagascar area in Africa to Asia, where you can observe lizards, turtles and – in the South American section – crocodiles.

The newest edition to the zoo, the Arctic Sea exhibition, was opened in 2012.
