For Children

At our Zoo, there is an adventure awaiting young visitors around every corner: children have the chance to experience animals up close, run around in playgrounds, explore secret passages and learn exciting facts at interactive information boards - making a visit to our Zoo a true journey of discovery. Here you can find out more about our animal highlights for children, our playgrounds and the free performances of Zoo Kasper.


You can hire a handcart for 2.00 euros at our ticket office so that you can enjoy a fun and relaxing stroll through the zoo. For a 20 euro deposit, you can obtain a special chip at our ticket office which allows you to release the handcarts. Unfortunately handcarts cannot be reserved in advance.
Admission to the Zoo is free for children between the ages of 3 and 16 on their birthdays. There is no need to give prior notice. Simply show an ID card or any other form of certification bearing the child’s date of birth to our ticket office staff and we will treat you to a very special birthday in our Zoo.
