In the interest of the environment, the Hellabrunn Zoo recommends the use of public transport

By public transport

  • MetroBus line 52 starting from the city (e.g. "Marienplatz (Rindermarkt)" and "Sendlinger Tor") to last bus stop “Tierpark (Alemannenstraße)”, right in front of the “Flamingo-Entrance”. 
  • Tram line 25 to the "Tiroler Platz" stop, approx. 15 minutes' walk to the "Flamingo entrance"

  • S8 starting from Airport Munich to terminal „Marienplatz“.
    Then U3 starting from “Marienplatz” to  “Thalkirchen (Tierpark)”.
