Zoo Dresden - Unterirdischer Zoo

Observe the animals up close

Our petting zoo at Dresden Zoo

We have had a small petting zoo here since 1986. In October 1992, however, the site was completely rebuilt.

Now you can pet Cameroon sheep there and watch the domestic pigs going about their business. Actually were live ten little cuty lambs there. 
The mouse castle is a great place for our cute rodents to tumble about in a typical farmer’s kitchen.

Plus, our young visitors can take a slide down into the nearby Underground Zoo, and there’s also a playground that’s great for climbing and romping about. Anyone who gets right to the top of the climbing frame gets the best views of the meerkats in their compound!

Dresden Zoo Playgrounds
The animals at our zoo need plenty of peace and quiet; they don’t like people shouting or dashing around. But we know that most people need to let loose at some point. That’s where our six playgrounds come in ... Let off some steam here

Children`s birthdays

Children’s birthdays
Children’s birthdays at the zoo are certainly something special. Away from everyday urban life, children will learn lots of little facts about the inhabitants on an interactive tour through the zoo.
