Dear Visitors,

We are delighted to be able to welcome you back to Dresden Zoo. We are permitted to reopen subject to maintaining the ban on contact and observing the regulations on hygiene and social distancing. Our animal houses and petting zoo reopened on 6 June. To avoid crowds building up, we regret that animal keeper hangouts and feeding times with keeper commentary remain cancelled.
Due to the latest easing of restrictions, standard zoo admission charges once again apply as of 6 June 2020.
Please note that, at present, annual passes can only be issued when visitor numbers are low. In the event of queues forming in the entrance area, your day ticket will be stamped, and you will be able to exchange it for an annual pass at a later date.
We hope you enjoy your visit to the zoo. Thank you for your support.
