Visiting with dogs

Your dog is welcome inside the zoo, but must be kept on a short leash. Dog owners are allowed to visit Hellabrunn with their dog. However, please take into consideration that there are many animals in open enclosures that are only separated from the visitor path by a narrow moat. This means that dog owners must be very disciplined in handling their pets. In order to ensure that dogs will continue to be allowed to enter the zoo, we urge you to respect the following rules: 

  • Only one dog per visitor is allowed inside the zoo.
  • Dogs must be kept on a short leash at all times. Dogs are not allowed inside the animal houses - not even when carried in the owner’s arms or transported in any another way. Also, dogs may not be left unattended while tethered within the zoo.
  • Since visiting the zoo is a special challenge for each dog, dog owner groups (e.g. dog schools) are strictly prohibited from entering the zoo
