At the restaurant Hacienda Las Casas (a true to original restored Art Nouveau building) you will set off on your expedition through the quaint South of South America. Here you will experience the wild landscapes of the Pantanal, the Pampas and Patagonia as well as the flamingo lagoon with its numerous animal species.


Horst, Sancho, Flax and Krümel – these are the names of the four male llamas in the herd that will greet you at the entrance to the theme world South America. As our long-serving marketing llama, Horst is the uncontested leader of this foursome.

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.
