Rostock Zoo - Discover the animal kingdom and have an adventure
At Rostock Zoo - the largest zoo on the German Baltic Sea coast, you can marvel at 4,500 animals from 320 different species across the world. See cheetahs and jaguars in the wild, polar bears on the “Bärenburg” and exotic birds in the rainforest pavilion. The naturally designed enclosures are embedded in a unique park landscape with different botanical features.
Travel back in time in the DARWINEUM. This living museum provides environmental education and science you can touch, take part in and be creative with. In two interactive exhibition areas, the biological diversity of life as evolution progresses can be experienced. The time periods “conceal” themselves in spacious areas with primeval landscape and animal pictures, with Europe’s largest jellyfish tank underneath. The heart of the DARWINEUM beats in the tropical hall - the new home for the gorillas and orangutans. The great apes live here together with De Brazza’s monkeys and gibbons in natural living areas.
Rostock Zoo is part of one of the most popular holiday destinations in northern Germany and has been distinguished several times with the “Familienfreundliche Einrichtung” (family-friendly establishment) mark of quality. As of September 2015, it is the best zoo in Europe is in the B category, with 500,000 to 1 million visitors per year.
