Zoo Dortmund

Adventure, fun & action

Explore Dortmund's green oasis! More than 1,500 animals and over 230 species await your visit in the south of the city among the old trees in a large park. Orangutans, leopards, giraffes, zebras or rhinos live on the extensive grounds which are thematically mainly based on the fauna of South America. You'll also find sloths, armadillos, colourful parrots, jaguars, and ancient tapirs.

We also recommend making a detour to Lake Phoenix nearby, or heading to Thier-Galerie for a shopping trip.
