Germany's first three-room apartment for rabbits

Rabbits in small boxes? Not with us! In 2015 our "rabbit world" was completed, which not only offers the animals much more space. The indoor facilities are designed as 3-storey apartments with digging, living and dining rooms as well as a 5m² balcony - plenty of space for the long ears to pursue their natural behavior such as hobbling, digging and playing with each other! The facility is accessible to our visitors and therefore extremely popular with the children. You are welcome to watch and stroke extensively here. And if the rabbits need a break, they have a variety of hiding and retreat options.

How a rabbit feels in the conventional way can be tested in our own zoo. According to the law, the minimum dimensions for keeping are 0.12 m² per rabbit, which corresponds to just the area of an A3 sheet. In livestock farming, where economic aspects have priority over animal welfare, such conditions are common. Unfortunately, rabbits do not live more comfortably in many private households, and some even live alone. In our "children's cage" we have extrapolated these dimensions to a 10-year-old child - entering is expressly welcome here! In this way we want to create a greater awareness of the needs of the little Hoppler.

In addition to hobbling, sleeping and playing, food intake should not be neglected.
