    Unfortunately, the path past the zoo is made of solid gravel, but can also go well with RR

    The Gelsenkirchen Zoo, the Zoom Erlebniswelt, is located in close proximity to the Erzbahn route. Easily accessible by bike and thus a wonderful stage destination.

    The zoo is divided into four theme areas: Alaska, Africa, Asia and Grimberger Hof.Alaska gives an insight into all four vegetation zones of the "big" model: the coastal rainforest, the tundra, the mountainous region and the polar region. Special features here include the underwater glass tunnel in the seal pool, the 3,000 m² Bärenanlage or the Alaska Ice Adventure, a simulated ride in an igloo on an ice floe.Africa shows a village with domestic breeds, various savannahs and the rainforest. A boat trip leads along the landscape enclosures. The boats are reminiscent of their design to the eponymous steamboat from the movie African Queen.Asia is the newest area with jungles, orangutans and fruit bats. A 1,300-meter-long promenade, sometimes even 5 meters in height, meanders through the jungle. In addition, there is an indoor playground and a food court, which also offers evening hours.In contrast, the Grimberger Hof is home to some Central European farm animals. The theme park Grimberger Hof features a petting zoo, a beer garden and a climbing playground.Around three quarters of a million visitors came to the "Zoom Erlebniswelt" in 2006. The highest number of visitors in one day in the summer season of 2006 (as well as on Easter Monday 2007) was around 14,000. The 1,000,000. Visitors of the year 2007 were counted in early November. In comparison, only about 250,000 people visited the then Ruhr Zoo before the conversion. [1]

    Nice zoo for families. Highly frequented bike paths around the west and north.
