Useful information for your visit

  • The Conservation Euro is a voluntary contribution to species conservation. 100% of contributions are donated to field projects. The Conservation Euro is automatically added to the admission price. Nursery and school groups are excluded from this. Visitors who prefer not to pay this contribution must inform ticket office staff of this BEFORE PAYMENT IS MADE. In that case, the Conservation Euro would then be deducted from the admission price. The contribution cannot be refunded once payment has been made. You can find more information on the Conservation Euro
  • Please note that children under 12 years are only admitted to the Zoo when accompanied by an adult.


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. If you would like to make the most of your birthday experience at the Zoo, you can also book a children’s birthday party with us. You can find all of the relevant information about having a birthday party at the Zoo here.  
Lockers are available in the foyer for small items of baggage (e.g. tote bags, handbags). You can hire a key at our information desk for 1.00 euro (plus a 10 euro deposit). Individual suitcases can be deposited at our information desk free of charge. Unfortunately it is not possible to reserve baggage storage in advance.
Dogs are not permitted inside the Zoo. No accommodation is provided for them. The smell of dogs can cause many zoo animals distress, as dogs are one of their predators. Some visitors, especially children, are also wary of dogs. Assistance dogs belonging to visitors who are physically or mentally disabled are excluded from this rule.
Children aged 12 and over are allowed to visit the Zoo unaccompanied. Children below the age of 12 are only allowed to visit the Zoo when accompanied by an adult.
