A zoo for everyone
in the middle of Dresden

CORONAVIRUS RULES LIFTED FROM 3 APRIL

Coronavirus restrictions for visiting the zoo will be lifted from 3 April. This means that:

> You do not need to provide proof of vaccination or recovery, or a negative test result (“3G rule” relaxed)

> There will be no contact tracing

> You are not required to wear a mask indoors

Although masks are no longer required, we do recommend that visitors continue to wear a mask in our animal houses out of consideration for our animal keepers and therefore our animals.
