Kids will love to pet animals at the petting zoo


The Straubinger Zoo was created in 1937/38 in the so called "Prince Regent Luitpolt grove" city park on the outskirts of Straubing. In a thatched shepherds cottage, the "Mooshausl" visitors could reinforce with a glass of milk and a sandwich during the walk and look at the small collection of animal owened by family Aschenbrenner. It contained pheasants, waterfowl, peacocks, a Nutria farm, foxes and deer. The then Mayor Joseph Straubinger Rider was a great animal lover and drove the expansion of the park ahead to the zoo. Back in September 1938 visitors could see three rhesus macaques. His idea was taken up by the Straubingers with enthusiasm. Friendly relations by Rider to Hagenbeck staff in Hamburg meant that they gave the  Zoo1940 three young lions. During the chaos of war, the trainer Hans Lange settled with its four lions in Straubing. Long had previously occurred in famous circus companies such as Althoff, Sarrasani and Williams. Mayor Rider won the trainer as first director of the zoo, who led it to his death in 1955. Zoos larger cities feared during the war for their animals and put them in Straubing - as could be seen through the elephants from the Nuremberg Zoo which led to a rush of visitors in May 1944. After the death of Lange the continued existence of the zoo for financial reasons was uncertain. They even considered to sell the animals to the then planned a zoo of the city of Regensburg. The crisis was overcome after two years. 1975 the zoo school was added and a year later the zoos tropical hous was opened. Since the zoo has been developed continuely.
