Wilhelma Zoo

Place of Interest Open in this Schedule (possibly closed due Covid-19 restrictions) Check location

Wilhelma Tierpark is a zoo and botanical garden that sits in the north of Stuttgart on the grounds of a royal palace. It was opened to the public in 1880 as a park but was rebuilt after the damage in the war. This is one of Germany’s biggest zoos that sees over 2 million visitors every year. Wilhelma is home to more than 10,000 animals of which the most attention-drawing creatures are gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos, and orangutans.

Also, this botanical garden has over 5000 flora species, including camellia, orchid, and azalea among others. The most amazing thing that makes this place so outstanding is the way the historical sites are used for settling animals and plants. These include the Tropics House, House for Animals of Prey, and the House for Tree Ferns. Kids can explore theme days and weekend lectures in the Wilhelm School here. Their Wild Weekend series keeps everyone busy with presentations on animals and nature conservation.
