For more than 50 years the zoo has been one of the most beautiful and best loved picnic destinations in Magdeburg. It offers various possibilities for recreation, education and leisure. With its 950 animals from 185 species, it presents a variety of species ranging from the penguin to the elephant. In recent years the zoo has become even more wonderful with several new attractions. The giraffe house is the beginning, and many new constructions have been added. A special attraction for the public are the Humboldt penguins, which are the favourites of young visitors especially. In recent years, new magnets to draw crowds have been added in the form of the human ape house, the spacious tiger sanctuary, snow leopard range and the lions' den.
