And best of all, use of the train is included in the admission price!

In surroundings that closely resemble the animals’ natural habitat, visitors can encounter tigers, leopards and rare tree kangaroos. In the walk-through Tropical Hall, narrow paths wind through lush vegetation, where brightly coloured birds sing their exotic songs and crocodiles laze by the water’s edge. aboard the free Tierpark train that stops at various points around the park – perfect for a relaxing zoological journey around the world!
