From Monday, March 8th, 2021, Heidelberg Zoo will reopen from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., but with restrictions. For the time being, access is only possible with an online ticket - also for holders of season tickets or sponsorship passes. Tickets are available at shop.zoo-heidelberg.de. An immediate return to regular operation is not yet possible due to the infection protection requirements. When visiting the zoo, special rules of hygiene and behavior also apply, which can be viewed at www.zoo-heidelberg.de/coronainfo.
Find the red Panda hidden in the branches or watch our bubbly elephant bachelors taking a dip - there is a lot to see in our Zoo: Majestic lions, elegant tigers or our brown bears, comical meerkats, wise giant tortoises with 100 years of life experience, our gorilla family or the chimpanzee gang - just a sample of our big variety of fascinating animals.
One of the most popular attractions is the feeding of our sea lions. The clever animals perform a skillful trick show with their keepers to earn their meal before they whizz off back into the pool.
Since its opening in 2010, our spacious elephant enclosure has been attracting many visitors. The newly constructed site is an outstanding architectural piece and has drawn Europe-wide attention. It is home to our four young Asian bull elephants, the first bachelor group in a German zoo. Being up to no good most of the time, the gang is a truly entertaining visitor magnet.
All year round, families can enjoy one of the region's nicest playgrounds: A central square features a handicapped accessible roundabout and a trampoline. Adjacent, toddlers can play on climbing frames and jungle paths.
Several recreational areas give our visitors a chance to have a rest: A catering tent offers snacks and drinks; from its dining area the children playing are always in view. On a hot day, our picnic ground offers shade provided by trees and awnings to recover from an eventful zoo trip. Our soon-to-be-built Noah's arch themed playground will offer kids even more fun in the main play area.
