Zoo Hoyerswerda

From a trip round the world to a journey through time

Globetrotters big and small feel at home at Hoyerswerda Zoo. Be whisked away from Lusatia on a little trip around the world, whether you go eye to eye with our tigress or have a happy tête-à-tête with the meerkats. At the Tropical House you will find crocodiles, snakes, our pygmy hippos – and look who’s hiding among the leaves of our tropical flora!

After this trip round the world at the zoo comes a journey through time at the town museum. The new ErlebnisReich, our exhibition for all the family, presents the town’s history with all kinds of fascinating discoveries and tricky puzzles to solve.

The African-themed restaurant SAMBESI treats visitors to the zoo and Hoyerswerda Palace to hearty meals, its unique indoor playground making it particularly family-friendly.
