Zoo in Munich
Located along the banks of the Isar River, the Tierpark Hellabrunn is the zoo of Munich that, with its 17,000 animals, is one of the largest and most beautiful gardens in Germany. It is the oldest geo-zoo in the world, which divides the animal species according to the geographical area of origin, allowing every animal to live in natural habitats suited to their needs.
The Polarium, which is the latest attraction of the zoo, for example, is a structure that houses penguins, sea lions, seals and polar bears. The Affenhaus is the residence of gorillas, orangutans and chimpanzees. In Parkteil Australien are hosted kangaroos, while elephants live in the nearby Elefantenhaus, created in 1914. The Lions, along with other typical animals of the forest, are in the Dschungelzelt, while many varieties of bats are in the Dracula's Mansion.
The zoo is an attraction very suitable for children, that's why it has been fitted with a Kindertierpark, where they can be in direct contact with the most harmless animals among those housed in the Tierpark.
