Zoological Gardens Wuppertal

Rich in tradition, the Wuppertal Zoological Gardens is one of the oldest zoos in Germany. Situated on one side of the valley, the Zoo is characterised by wide grassy areas, large ponds and old, established trees making it one of the most beautiful gardens of its type. Today, thanks to several excellent investments plus new constructions made especially in recent years, the Wuppertal Zoo has some of the most modern approaches to animal husbandry in Europe.
