On Thursday, 4 January 2018, the Munich Zoo restaurant opened its doors for the first time under the new operator Marché International – one day later than scheduled due to Storm Eleanor.
The zoo restaurant was closed for two days to allow the new operator to install its own concept. The Marché employees set to work immediately and built a vegetarian island that offers visitors to Hellabrunn a wide selection of homemade vegetarian and vegan salads, dressings and toppings. Visitors can also sample a range of freshly squeezed juices.
The Munich Zoo Hellabrunn was founded in 1911 as the first Geo-zoo worldwide. The animals live according to their geographic distribution in complex communities.
Hellabrunn’s Species Conservation Center is a unique forum where zoo visitors can access an amazing amount of information about the zoo’s many projects.
