Hellabrunn Zoo

January 15, 2018 | Activities, Germany, Munich

Hellabrunn Zoo is a 40 hectare zoological garden in Munich. The zoo is situated on the right bank of the river Isar, in the southern part of Munich. Founded in 1911, Hellabrunn is not a zoo in the classical sense. It is more of a nature preserve within the landscape conservation area of the Isar meadows inhabited by animals that live in especially large, structured enclosures. Thanks to an extensive array of ditches and a natural landscape design, the visitor can enjoy unobstructed view of animals that could normally only be obtained on safari. Open from April to September 9am – 6pm and October to March 9am – 5pm.

    The zoo feels well kept and compared to other zoos I’ve been to. The animals seem happy and have quite a bit of space to roam around – you don’t get that horrible cagey feeling you do with other zoos. Lots of playgrounds for the kids and a cute petting zoo. You can rent prams for little ones there – as there is a lot to see with toddlers it is advised to bring a buggy or rent one. (CB)
