Dresden Zoo is the fourth oldest zoo in Germany and has a long, rich history and tradition. Traces of the zoo’s past are evident right across the site. At the same time, we have continuously evolved into a modern zoo and now rank among the most popular leisure destinations in the city of Dresden. Visitors to our Zoo have the chance to experience a vast array of animals up close. We are also an area of recreation for people of all ages, and we make our visitors aware of issues relating to nature and species conservation.
