Zoo Kasper puppet master Stefan Flinner celebrated his stage anniversary
On 1 July 2016 our puppet master Stefan Flinner celebrated 25 years of performing. Kasper and his colourful little house are an integral part of a trip to the zoo; we can’t imagine the park without him! His hilarious adventures have become a must-see for young and old alike. When Egon Gäble, founder of the Dresden Zoo Puppet Theatre, died in 1967, it was a long time before a successor was found. But Stefan Flinner has breathed new life into the little stage, thrilling children with over 50 different plays since 1991.

Dresden Zoo Playground
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

Petting zoo

Dresden Zoo Petting 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 sheeps and domestic pigs. More info here
