Nela and Nobby: Off to new adventures

The undisputed stars at Hellabrunn Zoo are the polar bears twins Nela and Nobby. The adorable cubs are now old enough for their next adventure: exploring the rocky landscape of the Polar World.

Upon arrival into the world on 9 December 2013, the polar bear twins spent the first three months of their life with Mama Giovanna in the family home at Hellabrunn's Polar World. Since mid-March, the cubs have been able to enjoy venturing outside every day to explore the tundra. But the 2,800 m2 enclosure has more to offer: it also features a rocky landscape and a large pool.
