Protection of the environment and species

What can we all do to contribute to the preservation of wild bees? What do flora and fauna have to offer? In the Tierpark Hagenbeck zoo you can learn a lot about the environment and species protection. The zoo’s school provides children and adults with an abundance of information and gives them the opportunity to find out everything about the different species and their current threats. Tierpark Hagenbeck has taken it upon itself to preserve the flora and fauna for future generations. Many endangered species are kept from extinction through conservation programmes. They also support and promote research programmes and projects in the animals’ native countries. The zoo also pays attention to the efficient use of resources, for example, only using service water, and was the first zoo in Germany to receive the international ecolabel.

Arctic Ocean and Tropical Aquarium Hagenbeck

The Arctic Ocean is Hamburg's coolest place. On more than 8,000 square metres you will experience breathtaking views over and under the water. Discover polar bears, king penguins, sea bears and walruses with Germany's first walrus offspring. A 750 metre long circular trail leads through the middle of an impressive seabird aviary. In the Arctic Ocean, every visitor becomes a polar explorer.

You shouldn't miss a visit to the tropical aquarium, which covers more than 8,000 m². There you will experience more than 14,300 exotic animals on land, in the water and in caves.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Eimsbüttel & Eppendorf

Here, one can find magnificent old building façades, local and exquisite restaurants as well as fancy boutiques and owner-operated shops. While Eppendorf is rather fancy, one can feel the hanseatic serenity in Eimsbüttel. Both districts offer much green and water and are hence with good reason very popular neighbourhoods in Hamburg.
