One of the first zoos to house animals in moated, open enclosures rather than cages, the Hamburg Zoo's exhibits are spread over dozens of acres, where animals from all around the world live. Visitors will find elephants and giraffes from Africa, Asian elephants, tigers and lions, as well as tropical sharks and crocodiles.
The zoo’s lovely gardens are also exotic, recreating the ambiance of countries such as Japan and Nepal. Take a ride around the gardens by horse and carriage to explore the private zoo, run by the Hagenbeck family since 1907.
Hamburg Zoo is in the western suburb of Stellingen. The zoo has its own U-Bahn station, Hagenbecks Tierpark.
