A visit to Tierpark Hagenbeck is always an unforgettable experience:
for over 100 years, the 19 hectares of grounds have been delighting visitors of all ages with an amazing variety of botanical species, protected views, open-air enclosures and numerous cultural monuments.

Discover over 1,850 animals from every continent – including one of Europe’s biggest elephant herds – and enjoy watching lots of animals moving around the park freely. Visit the show presentations and learn exciting facts about our animals – and maybe even try feeding an elephant or a giraffe yourself!

Other highlights of Europe’s most charming zoo include pony rides, a fairyland miniature railway, a petting zoo and a large play area. During the summer, the park remains open until late into the evening and offers a highly varied range of events.

The Eismeer: over 8,000 sq m of polar fascination in the animal park:

Globally unique: a place where North Pole meets South Pole, and you can experience everything with all your senses.
Hear, smell, touch and see the lifelike penguin world in its ice grotto. Be amazed by breathtaking views both above and below water of polar bears, fur seals and one of the deepest walrus pools in the world.
1,200 square meters of water surface area and 5.5 million liters of water in a range of pools offer the animals plenty of space to swim and dive. Watch the underwater action from behind large panoramic panels. As you pass along the 750 meters walkway, you will get to see species from polar regions behaving almost as if they were in the wild and Arctic seabirds in a free flight aviary.

Enjoy your visit to Tierpark Hagenbeck!
