Hellabrunn Zoo

Local name: Tierpark Hellabrunn

Münchener Tierpark Hellabrunn is the largest zoo in Germany. Over 19,000 animals representing 750 species from all continents have been gathered here. There are over 9,000 fish, corals and jellyfish in the aquarium. The peculiarity is the 14-meter swimming pool for blackfin reef sharks. An additional attraction is the water playground for children with a climbing path and a family cafe.

The Hellabrunn Munich Zoo was founded in 1911. It is located in the nature reserve on the Jizera River bay; covers an area of over 40 hectares. The garden, in terms of diversity of animal species, is divided into fifteen sectors, including "Paradise of orangutans", "House of elephants", "House of turtles", "Polarium - or seals and penguins", "Villa Dracula" with bats and others.

The Munich ZOO is not a traditional zoo, but a reserve where animals live largely without security, in natural conditions. Visitors can see them up close or through glass windows. Feeding shows are particularly popular with visitors.
