Giraffes, meerkats, lions, giant otters. All these animals and many more await you during a visit to Dortmund Zoo, which offers you a beautiful contrast to the city with its extensive green areas. Here you will find about 1,500 animals and 230 species. The Dortmund Zoo focuses on South America's wildlife, which has found a new home in semi-natural habitats such as the Amazon House and the South America Meadow. The park landscape with its old trees and the modern animal houses make your zoo visit a special experience in any weather.
