On your expedition to South Americayou will experience a continent in transition. In the context of our master plan to become a Zoo of the Future this continent is the last to be turned into a theme and animal world by 2018. The Snow and Amur leopards will then be given their rightful place in the theme and animal world of ‘Asia’. In our zoo you can already encounter the following South American animals: Maned wolves, coatis, flamingos, as well as the famous lama called ‘Horst’ and his alpaka friend ‘Harry’. If you fancy trying a spicy South American dish, why not stop off at Hacienda Las Casas. 

„El Dorado“ – Playground for little discoverers"

Enjoy hot Latin American cuisine in the restaurant Hacienda Las Casas where you can be served at your seats, while the little ones conquer the adventure playground „El Dorado“. The ten-meter long Amazon steamer and the Guinea pig pen are among the highlights of this enclosure.

Fun and games in the animal nursery

Watch the kids’ eyes light up! In the animal nursery you can get really close to our farm animals. The dwarf goats in particular like to be stroked. There are also dwarf pigs, geese, donkeys and other animals waiting to be discovered.

Right next to it there is an enticing gold panning area. For a small fee, you can hire a panning tray to sieve the gold nuggets out of the sand. The „gold“ that you find can then be traded in for a zoo souvenir.
