The Green Zoo Wuppertal

The Wuppertal Zoological Garden is one of the oldest and most traditional zoos in Germany. Around 3,300 animals from all parts of the world are at home here, including numerous endangered species. In terms of landscape, the zoo is one of the most beautiful and varied facilities of its kind. Situated on a slope, wide meadows, large ponds and old trees dominate the landscape.

One of the highlights of Wuppertal Zoo is the herd of elephants, which occupies one of the zoo’s largest enclosures with an area of over 4,000 square metres. Wuppertal Zoo is famous for its successful breeding of African elephants.

The lion enclosure at Wuppertal Zoo is the largest lion enclosure ever built in a German zoo. Covering an area of 1 hectare, the enclosure, which is modelled on an African steppe with weathered rock formations, provides an impressive home for the lions.

With Aralandia, the zoo offers ample space for its inhabitants with a 1,000 square metre and up to 10 metre high free-flight aviary. For highly endangered bird species such as parrots, parakeets and flamingos, the Green Zoo Wuppertal would like to contribute to the conservation of the species and draw attention to their endangerment and the need for conservation projects.

The International Office was able to win over the director of the Wuppertal Green Zoo, Mr Lawrenz, to lead the tour of the facilities in English.

After the tour, the Green Zoo Wuppertal can be explored on your own for the whole day.
