Dear children,

today you are great naturalists! Many animals and plants live in the zoo, which you may have never seen before, but you are probably already familiar with some of them. In order to be able to discover them all and not to disturb them, all good researchers must adhere to a few rules:

  1. Every day, our zookeepers prepare exactly what they need for our animals to stay healthy. For some animals, you can give some of them to the animals yourself - pay attention to the corresponding signs (e.g. grass feeding allowed)! Please feed this feed only to the animals in the enclosure where the feed dispenser is located! To ensure that our animals do not get sick, you must not feed them with food that they have brought with them or plants that have been torn out or picked up in the park!

  2. Always stay on the paths and the open meadows in the park. Never exceed the barriers - they protect you and the animals!

  3. Animals are also sometimes tired and need their breaks. Please be considerate of it and do not try to wake it up with a loud shout or knock on the windows!

  4. All children must be traveling with an adult in the zoo up to their 14th birthday. The adult must take good care of you so that he can protect you from dangerous situations.

  5. If you visit the zoo with a dog, please keep it on a short leash. Zoo animals and other visitors are sometimes afraid of dogs and feel much more comfortable when the dogs cannot get too close to them. A few places, such as the farm or the discovery barn, are therefore taboo for dogs - pay attention to the signs! So that you are well equipped in case your dog “has to go”, get a free dog bag at the checkout!

  6. For your own safety, you are not allowed to drive around on our parking lot with bicycles, scooters, wheels, roller skates, inline skates, skateboards, scooters or similar. We are also not allowed to bring balls, frisbee slices or balloons. But with so many playgrounds and educational games, you won't miss that!

  7. If you have garbage, please use the many trash cans in the park. So you help to keep it clean and everyone feels good!

  8. Even if our animals are used to visitors, they can all be frightened - so keep calm, keep a safe distance and listen to the instructions of the zoo staff! Riding our animals accompanied by an animal keeper is at your own risk.

  9. Be careful with all games and play equipment in the zoo. If something does break, please let an employee know so that the game can be repaired. Nets hang under the adventure bridge for your safety. They catch you if you lose your balance. Under no circumstances jump on purpose
    in these networks! In the discovery barn you can play with an adult from the age of three. From the age of eight, you no longer need a supervisor and can discover on your own.

  10. Be careful not to wear helmets or clothing with long cords around your neck on all playgrounds - you could get caught and injure yourself!

  11. We are very happy if you take souvenir photos of your excursions and hang them up with you. Please also pay attention to the other visitors - not everyone wants to be seen in your photos.

  12. Be sure to listen to what the zoo staff say and stick to it!

These are many rules ... so the most important thing for you to remember:

1. Don't run - some animals scare away and hide very quickly.
In addition, you will surely overlook one or the other animal when flitting. That would be a shame

2. Behave quietly - some animals hear much better than we humans and get ear pain,
when they have to hear loud shouting. Good researchers also want the animals
watch in peace and not constantly distracted by noise.

3. Only feed the zoo animals with the feed from the zoo - they cannot tolerate cuts
Fruit, vegetables or snacks from the snack bar and can cause severe abdominal pain from it
to get. Good researchers give the animals the food provided by the zoo if they go with them
finished observing or looking closely at the mouth and teeth of the animals
