Situated in the south of Munich, on the banks of the river Isar, Munich Zoo, also known as Hellabrunn Zoo, is home to over 17,000 animals. With impressive natural surroundings this is a unique, unspoilt environment and the perfect place to spend your day, especially if you are visiting Munich with kids.
Compared to a lot of other zoos in the world, the fees for entering are quite cheap. The exhibits are amazing and for kids there is both a playground as well as pony ride. Should you need a break whilst visiting, there is also a beer garden located just next to the adventure playground.
Prepare for a day at Hellabrunn Zoo
Covering 36-hectares, Munich Zoo is one of Germany's largest - and it is no ordinary zoo. Hellabrunn was the first zoological garden in the world to group animals together by their natural habitats, rather than according to species. This geo-zoo concept allows visitors to see the animals up-close in their usual habitat, allowing for an experience more reminiscent of viewing animals in the wild rather than in a zoo. Part of the experience at Munich Zoo includes colourful coral reef aquariums, huge aviaries covering 5,000 square metres, an impressive elephant enclosure and a jungle tent for lions - truly a treat for all ages.
