For children there is a playground and a petting-area, and note that the giraffes also often are cureouse, so they sometimes can be petted as well.
After passing the entrance (with no english ore german speaking staff - though only 30 minutes drive frome the Austrian border) turn to the right, where you meet the farm yard, t's neighbours the Bush Dogs and then an pampas. Across we meet some Black Crested gibbons and some south amercan monkeys, as well as the sloth. On the right hand we then have a more ore less enclosureless area (as well as the toilets) - dont know if this area is new, ore just land they dont know what to do with (?), here we meet the bactrian camels, the llamas, fallow deers as well as the ostrich. Now in the "old" part again we are in the african area with hamadryas baboons (sharing there enclosure with Barbary sheeps and the warthog), lions and a savannah. Behinde the giraffe-house we meet a flamingopond and the tropical house, with especially reptiles in it. Outside again we have on the left hand the chimpanzees and on the right hand small foodvendor, behinde that there is a house for aardvarks Out side it again we meet the pygmy hippo and some turtoises. Then we reached a small birdsection, with especially parots. Going right we have the enclosures fore the crowned crane, some lemur species and (if you go upstairs) an enclosure for asian black bears.Downstairs again and passing the coati we meet the last few enclosures, with animals like the roe deer.
