Directions to the Wuppertal Zoo
Arrival by suspension railway (Schwebebahn)
Float to the Zoo – you can only do this in Wuppertal! A visit to the Wuppertal Zoo is easily combined with a trip on the famous Schwebebahn. This overhead suspension railway is our most famous landmark. As the entire train system lies within the city of Wuppertal you can use the all-in-one ticket for the Zoo + transport (Kombi-Karten), which we offer together with the VRR public transport system. It is only a few minutes walk from the Schwebebahn station "Zoo/Stadion". The entry to the Zoo is in Hubertusallee. For information on the Schwebebahn and train schedule go to: www.schwebebahn.de.
Please note: Due to construction work the Schwebebahn (overhead suspension railway) will be repeatedly out of service in the second half of 2010. For further information go to: www.wsw-online.de
Arrival by train
You can also reach our Zoo easily by train. Within the city of Wuppertal you can use the the all-in-one ticket for Zoo and transport (Kombi-Karte) which we offer together with the VRR. Get out at the station "Wuppertal Zoologischer Garten" on the regional train (S-Bahn) line no. 8 (Hagen-Mönchengladbach) and line no. 9 (Haltern/Bottrop-Wuppertal) and we're only a short walk away.

Park + Ride
The combination of car and local public transportation in Wuppertal is a particularly attractive way to get to the Zoo. Get off at the suspension railway station "Zoo/Stadion" or if travelling by regional train (S-Bahn) on lines no. 8 or 9 at the "Zoologischer Garten" station and walk a few minutes to the Zoo entry. Within Wuppertal there several P+R parking areas, which provide easy access to public transportation systems, at many of the stations along the suspension railway and regional train (S-Bahn) lines. A list of P+R parking areas in the diagram will show you exactly where you are. Further information about P+R areas and the suspension railway or the regional train schedules can be found at www.schwebebahn.de, www.wsw-online.de or www.vrr.de.
