From the African lion to the native ibex: Salzburg Zoo with its abundance of species is popular with visitors of all ages – an ideal excursion destination for the whole family in the south of Salzburg.
See animals from all over the world in Hellbrunn
Salzburg Zoo is home to 150 species with around 1,500 animals. From the pygmy mouse to the white rhinoceros, there are creatures of various sizes from all parts of the world. A special attraction at the zoo is the African section with its spacious savannah enclosure and lion house. Red pandas, Alpine ibexes and brown bears inhabit the Eurasian area. The American fauna, on the other hand, includes sloths and South American tapirs, and the Australian area is home to parma wallabies.
The unique zoo landscape at Hellbrunn
The 14-hectare grounds offer enough space for large-scale outdoor facilities. Salzburg Zoo is committed to keeping its animal enclosures as close to their natural habitat as possible. To this end, Hellbrunn's scenic features, such as the steep rock faces or the hilly meadow landscape, are used to create the specifically required habitats.
Experiencing the animals up close
The approximately 400,000 visitors a year have many opportunities to get closer to the animals: a zoo safari, a "rendezvous with your favourite animal" or evening tours after hours in summer. With native and exotic wild animals, there are also always baby animals to see. And the pets in the Ark petting zoo are particularly keen on cuddles.
The zoo in the historic castle park
The area of today's zoo in the south of the town of Salzburg was an archiepiscopal game park as early as the 15th century. The Hellbrunn complex with the palace, trick fountains and zoo was planned by Archbishop Markus Sittikus from 1612 and completed in 1619. Today, Salzburg Zoo is a modern nature and species conservation centre – and a highlight for children!
