About the Zoo

Since its opening in 1968 as “Animal Park Siegelbach” it has grown and evolved into the Zoo Kaiserslautern as it is known today.

On an area of about 17 acres there are the habitats of 110 animal species and 631 wild and domestic animals. You can experience exotic animals as well as wild and domestic animals from various countries around the world.

The Zoo’s priority is to keep the animals in their natural environment and by demonstrating biospheres, animal activities, detailed information, animal education science and youth work, giving visitors an understanding of nature conservation and the protection of species.

Kaiserslautern Zoo does much more than simply manage the day by day operation of the zoo; it also supports scientific research at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern and cooperates with working groups and institutions of animal protection.

The zoo takes all EU guidelines very seriously as well as the World Nature Conservation Strategy. These guidelines constitute how the biospheres of every single species at the zoo has to be equipped.

The planning concept Zoo 2000 will double the size of the zoo of Kaiserslautern and future habitats will be extended in the coming years, including the biospheres: “Ussurien”, “Savannenlandschaft” (savannah), “Amazonas”, “Pfälzer Bauernhof” (local farm), “Erlensumpf” (swamp) with European otters and minks, as well as a large playground in connection with the existing beer garden and fairground.

The zoo offers professionally guided tours, which children especially enjoy, for instance on children’s birthday parties or kindergarten visits.
