After paying the entrance fee we see on the left side an aviary for vaders, following this road straight forward we are having on the left side other bird aviaries. At the next point where we can turn right we do so and se potcupines, the we follow the bath on the left. Climbing the hill we se the birds of prey for the birdshow and then follow the enclosure for Asian elephants. Across we are having the enclosure for hamadryas baboons. Behind the elephant house we find brown bears, dholes and the snow leopard. Following the main path and the turning right we se the dingo and across then the Javan rusa. We have now reached the African savannah area with giraf, zebras and ostriches. Inside the house we find pancake tortoise and the short-eared elephant shrew. Outside again we follow the main path and se sika deer, Thuringian goat,  a South American pampas with alpacas and an enclosure for high-land cattle. Turning leftwe see the Shetland ponys and a lake with beavers. Across we find the landrace of Bentheim and an outback enclosure for kangaruhs and the emu. At the bees we once again turn left and see donkeys and bactrian camels. Quite beautiefull are the pheasants on the right hand and kids will love the following guinea pigs. Now we reached the kids area and find rabbits and the petting area with goats.  A bit longer down the path we are having the yellow-throated marten. Returning back to the childrens zoo and turning left we are having the monkey house with grey langures, cotton-top tamarins and the orangutan. Behind this house we finde the kinkajou.  On the left hand we then have an area for small predators like the meerkat and raccoon. Now heading for the exit we will meet the harbour seal and an aviary  for egrets and storks.
