Welcome to zoo Görlitz

Close to nature and lovingly laid out


With its five hectares Zoo Görlitz-Zgorzelec belongs to the smaller zoos in Germany. Special attention is on the quality of animal husbandry and customer service. Around 500 animals and over 100 different species are presented in close to nature and lovingly laid out enclosures. Thereby, not only intensive promotions for the preservation of nature and of threatened animal species are important tasks, but also fascinating contacts and experiences of people with animals. Many accessible enclosures give the opportunity to meet ibex, deer and eastern grey kangaroo eye to eye.


Many Highlights

are waiting to be discovered. In zoo Görlitz the only Tibetan village in Europe with authentically rebuilt houses and traditional animals can be found. The explorer barn with indoor playing opportunities and thematic playgrounds is not only fun for children, there they can playfully deal with topics such as globalization and sustainability. These can be experienced with the cycle of milk on the UNESCO-rewarded domestic animal playground for example.

The zoo-owned food station named "Futterkiste" with regional and sustainable products that can be enjoyed on our sundeck with an all-round view of the zoo, the visit is rounded off gastronomically
