Bigger, more beautiful and more natural than before. The new ape enclosures for gorillas and chimpanzees at Hellabrunn Zoo opened on Friday, 27 March. Situated in the Jungle House, the completely revamped indoor and outdoor facilities will open to the public just in time for the Easter holidays.
Lush green meadows, natural climbing trees, a small stream and rocks that look deceptively real: the outdoor enclosures for gorillas and chimpanzees have been extended to create a new, exciting climbing paradise. But the excitement will not be exclusive to the apes.
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.
