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

With the Green Mobility journey planner, you can find various options for getting from your home to Hellabrunn. The integrated CO2 calculator shows you how climate-friendly the respective means of transport is.

By public transport

  • U3 (e.g. starting from "Marienplatz") to underground station „Thalkirchen (Tierpark)“, approximately 3 minutes footpath in order to reach the “Isar Entrance” (signposted). 
  • MetroBus line 52 starting from the city (e.g. "Marienplatz (Rindermarkt)" and "Sendlinger Tor") to terminal “Tierpark (Alemannenstraße)”, right in front of the “Flamingo-Entrance”. 
  • Tram lines 15 and 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)”.

by car

Due to the limited number of parking spaces available, we recommend traveling to the zoo by public transport, especially on weekends, during the Bavarian school holidays and public holidays.

  • Tierparkstraße - (near "Isar-Entrance") - cars only - own parking rate system (this parking lot is managed by Bavarian Red Cross)
  • Siebenbrunner Straße - (near "Flamingo-Entrance") - omnibuses and cars (6,00 €, cash or card / EC, Visa, Mastercard, Amex)
  • Disabled Parking Spaces: There is a limited number of disabled parking spaces available in both car parks. Diabled visitors can get their parking fees refunded, when producing the parking coin (for parking lot 2) and a valid 'diabled card' (including photo) at the cash registers at the entrances on the same day.
  • Plan your route with Google Maps.

  • Low emission zone:
    The zoo itself is not in Munich's low emission zone. Nonetheless, if you plan to arrive by car please read the information below:
