The Zoos in the Ruhr Valley delight with a wide range of animals to be seen, from lots of different kinds of monkeys to meerkats to tigers. But the native animals here are also real crowd favourites: Wild enclosures display wild boars, deer and others in their natural environment. If you want to touch the animals, as well as look at them, there are lots of petting zoos in the Ruhr Valley.
Zoos in the Ruhr Valley - animal activities for all ages
As well as watching the animals, zoos in the Ruhr Valley give you the opportunity to learn lots about them too. In addition to interesting information on display boards, you can immerse yourself in the animal world on special guided tours. Particularly popular are the feeds at zoos - some animal parks provide animal food that you are allowed to give to some of the animals. Spend the whole day and keep discovering new things, especially in the larger zoos, but also in the wild parks. Take a break or have a picnic in the middle and then set off again on safari and journeys of discovery!
