Kasper with his grandmother

Free puppet show

Thank you for more than 15,000 Zoo Kasper shows!

Puppet master Stefan Flinner has been delighting young audiences with Zoo Kasper for over 30 years. Dresden Zoo is very sad to announce that Stefan is having to retire this year due to ill health. Dresden Zoo without Zoo Kasper? It’s hard to imagine after more than 15,000 performances and fun adventures that have entertained over two million visitors at the puppet theatre. Stefan Flinner will always be part of our zoo family and we thank him from the bottom of our hearts.

Dear children,

unfortunately, after more than 30 years, I am having to leave the stage. I’ve had so much fun taking you with me on exciting adventures through the zoo and bringing laughter to young and old alike. Farewell, and a hearty


to you all!!

Warmest wishes from your Zoo Kasper, Stefan Flinner

Zookasper Stefan Flinner.
