Munich Zoo (Münchener Tierpark Hellabrunn)
Tierpark Hellabrunn, Munich's Zoo, is the oldest "Geo-Zoo" organized geographically by continents and natural habitats of the creatures and critters. Some of the most popular habitats for vistitors are the creatively named "Villa Dracula" for bats, penguins and polar bears of the "Polarium", and "Orangutan Paradise".
The orientation of the Zoo on the Isar meadow allows for unobstructed viewing, and the little ones will especially enjoy watching their 5,000 new furry, aquatic, and feathered friends during feeding time - even the piranhas. In the petting zoo, kids are also allowed to feed the deer and goats.
The largest zoo in Europe, Tierpark Hellabrunn uniquely allows dogs on its grounds, on a leash of course. Meet and greets are available with ring-tailed lemurs, elephants, giant tortoise, sea lions, and camels and their respective zookeepers so children and adults alike can learn even more about their favorite animal.
