Zoos, animal parks and enclosures, family-friendly

Southwest of the old town of Wismar, the zoo of the Hanseatic City extends over 13 hectares - an ideal family excursion destination

Mighty bison cavort here alongside coatis, raccoons, waterfowl, sheep, wolves or rabbits. A family of ostriches also lives here. Characteristic for the Wismar Zoo are its large play areas. The adventure playground with Tarzan swing and water play equipment, the boat facility with rafts and boats as well as the ropeways and the children's railroad offer variety for the young visitors. A new feature is the lynx enclosure, which has been enlarged from the original 70 square meters to 800 square meters and offers sufficient space for two lynxes.

Southwest of Wismar's old town, the zoo covers an area of 13 hectares. Here, in the midst of the Mecklenburg hills, the visitor can experience an interesting selection of wild animals but also numerous domestic animals.Impressive are the mighty bisons, the imposing ostrich family or the nimble coatis, which demonstrate climbing skills on thick ropes above the heads of the visitors.

Many animals can be experienced in the zoo without a fence, close up, so to speak. In the petting enclosure you are quickly surrounded by the little goats and sheep and on the monkey island the calicoes jump on your shoulder. One should not forget a side trip to the mouse parlor.

Characteristic for the Wismar Zoo are its large play areas. The adventure playground with Tarzan swing and giant swing, the boat park with rafts and boats as well as the cable cars and the children's railroad offer fun and games for young and old visitors.
