Please pay attention to these zoo regulations! We ask you to inform any children for whom you are responsible about the zoo regulations before you start your tour of the zoo. We urgently ask you to take your role of supervising children seriously in order to prevent any unnecessary accidents or damages etc. from the onset.
The zoological garden is an establishment for humans and animals. So that everybody comes to their rights and is protected against harm it is crucial that the following rules are adhered to.
Feeding is only permitted in those areas where you can find animal feed dispensers. The well being of the animals is important. Hence, all animals are fed appropriate quantities and foodstuffs that are in accordance with the diet for their particular species.
Unauthorised, additional feeding by zoo visitors
It is not permitted to walk on the lawns and flowerbeds and plants should not be damaged.
Plants are also living organisms with high maintenance costs. Leaves, blossoms, bark or fruits of many ornamental plants are poisonous for certain animals and should not be fed to them.
Many animals rest during the daytime. Do not hold umbrellas or sticks etc within reach of the animals.
Barriers and enclosure fences are supposed to act as protection against the unexpected reactions of animals.
Waste, paper and cigarette butts should only be thrown into the bins provided. Animals can choke on waste objects, which they might swallow. Coins are also a danger to animals with the risk of choking.
Some visitors feel harassed or troubled by these. Jumpy animals might also panic.
Parents, teachers and those in charge must take their role of supervision seriously.
