Visiting one of the world's best zoos will unleash your sense of wonder every time. The animal kingdom is diverse and fascinating, and it is exciting to explore the varied animal habitats and ecological environments in which they live. Zoos give you the opportunity to make the acquaintance of exotic or indigenous species in a safe and meaningful way and strive to educate humans about the important role these species play in the continued preservation of the animal kingdom.
Founded in 1752, this beautiful zoo is at its most spectacular from April to October. The summer months, June through August, are the busiest. This stunning zoo has been dubbed Europe’s best zoo five years in a row. Critically endangered giraffes, orangutans, and African elephants reside here, and a pair of endangered giant pandas and their sweet babies are sure to tug at heartstrings.
