Welcome to Zoo Neumünster

The Zoo Neumünster offers an animal-friendly home for over 700 animals from around eighty-five different species on 24 hectares of forest.

Our visitors can experience our motto "nature experience - deceleration" up close.

Marvel at Germany's largest polar bear, "Vitus", who stands an impressive 3.60 metres tall and can be observed at the underwater view. Enjoy our playful Barbary macaques and Humboldt penguins. The pathways are suitable for wheelchairs and the shady old trees invite you to take carefree walks between the spacious animal enclosures.

At the large adventure playground children can run around carefree, and there are also various barbecue areas available to our visitors.

Please note our zoo rules.

We are looking forward to your visit.
