Every child, but also most adults like to go to the zoo. If this zoo is also well and sensibly laid out, the animals live in near-natural enclosures and the visitor is offered unforgettable hours, the joy and pleasure is twice as great. One such facility is the Zoo Salzburg.
A huge rock wall bounds the area on one side. The adjacent enclosures of the different animals from all parts of the world, run out in the extensive landscape of the Alps.
The sprawling complex is home to around 800 wild animals. The operators, caretakers and veterinarians try to make the life of the animals in Salzburg Zoo as natural as possible. Local animal species such as the ibex, the deer, the roe deer and the bear belong to the zoo, as animals from Africa, America and Asia do.
The proud rhino lies lazily in the midday sun, just as it would in Africa’s savannah. The tiger roams his territory. Fortunately there is a fence between the impressed visitors and the king of the jungle. So even the smallest children can marvel at the mighty animal and thus learn the respect for nature.
The grounds of Salzburg Zoo are designed according to the latest findings and offer every animal species the ideal habitat in a zoo complex.
A zoo and especially the zoo Salzburg, serves not only the joy of the visitors. Through this facility, science has unimagined opportunities to observe and research the wildlife, in order to use the realizations won here in the free nature for the preservation of the diversity of species.
Various events about animals and nature are offered throughout the year.
The Salzburg Zoo, its visitors and guests, is a much-loved attraction in Salzburg. Salzburg, the city itself, is already worth a visit. But the visit to the Salzburg Zoo makes it complete.
In order to really enjoy the visit, the right hotel, pension or private hotel is indispensable.
For example, the Hotel zur Post, which is centrally located in a beautiful townhouse, offers a very good deal. Lovingly furnished rooms invite you to linger.
Also centrally located, not too far from the Salzburg Zoo, is the historic Villa Ceconi. Since 2008, this city hotel, newly renovated, welcomes its impressed guests. The rooms of this prestigious house are stylish and elegant. Here the guest can really feel at home.
Salzburg, the city of Mozart, attracts not only by its famous former residents, but also the excellent quality of its hotels and of course the outstandingly positive facilities of the Salzburg Zoo, making a visit to the city an unforgettable and incomparable experience.
