Tierpark Hagenbeck

Hamburg's animalistic original

There are many highlights for young and old in Europe's nicest private zoo: a total of 1850 animals in large open-air spaces, an elephant house, an extensive orang-utan enclosure, the tropical aquarium and the new "Eismeer".

Discover more than 1,400 animals of more than 140 species, including Hagenbeck's large herd of elephants and many free-roaming animals. Learn exciting facts about the animals during demonstrations. The fairytale railway, petting enclosure and the large children's playground are further highlights awaiting you at the zoo. During the summer nights, Hagenbeck Zoo is open until late in the evening with a varied programme.

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.

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.
