The history of Hellbrunn Zoo

The Archbishop’s game park was already installed in 1424 to the south of Salzburg. When construction began on the summer palace at Hellbrunn this game park was integrated into the extensive grounds and further animals such as red deer, rabbits, partridges, tortoises, bears, wolves, lynx, cranes and storks were added. In the course of the century the zoo in Hellbrunn was extended and modernized. Today the animals live in mainly natural conditions in the large enclosures.

A home for threatened species

Monkeys, cheetahs, lions, tortoises, marmots, otters, antelopes, camels, white rhinos and bears live peacefully together at Hellbrunn zoo.
