    The zoo is located in a park with partly very old trees.
    The park is located Wuppertal typically hillside.
    There are so many vertical meters together.
    Since one tries to keep species-appropriate the animals have retreat areas so that some animals are not necessarily to be seen.
    For the little ones there is one or the other playground.

    If you are lucky you can reach the lions in the lion enclosure of the Wuppertal Zoo on this section up to 20m. The lion pictured here was not impressed by me and enjoyed the spring sun almost motionless. Nevertheless, I was happy about the 3m high double fence that separated us.

    If you follow the route, you will see llamas and pampas on the left and tigers on the right.

    Nice zoo for the whole family. Also good motives for amateur photographers available without always having the cage in the picture. If you're on crutches, you should avoid the zoo because of the altitude difference (speak from experience).

    In this zoo elephants are tortured and abused for commercial purposes. The animals are subjected to violence by the zookeepers and have to pose for photos with visitors and show tricks. It is unheard of that Zoo Wuppertal degrades elephants to live photo scenes and gymnastic equipment!
