Prof. Brandes House

The Prof. Brandes House is not only home to our koalas, but also a wide variety of monkey species, such as lion-tailed macaques, emperor tamarins and guerezas, which also feature on the zoo’s logo. The critically endangered crowned lemurs and woolly monkeys, which are rarely displayed in zoos, also live here in appropriate enclosures. In the tropical area, our sloths are free to roam above visitors’ heads. Here visitors can also see our false gharial and various insect species.
