Rostock Zoo is located in the German city of Rostock. It is home to more than 4,000 animals from all over the world, a palm house as well as an exhibition about evolution. Explore the zoo and meet little meerkats, giant turtles, or beautiful cheetahs.

The zoo also features exotic plants. Its unique zoological-botanical atmosphere, besides of course the excellent quality of the animal houses and the varied educational offer, was the reason why Rostock Zoo was awarded Best Zoo in Europe in 2015.

At the palm house, you can meet gorillas, orang-utans, sloths, and zebra finches. Various events and show feedings complete the picture. Furthermore, pieces of statuary art and scluptures are embedded into the 56 ha park area.

In the Footsteps of Darwin

Three interactive exhibition spaces make up the Darwineum, where you learn about evolution. The lively museum features Europe's largest Quallen-Kreisel, living fossils, and a colourful coral reef. Moreover, you can learn about keeping animals in ecosystems close to nature.
