The Zoo Braunschweig is run privately and receives no grants. Because of that we have to cover our costs what we did the last 30 (!) years. In addition, like any other private companies we also pay taxes, offer apprentice positions and jobs.
But we attach much importance to offer family-friendly prices. Our small zoo, only 3 ha large, is an eventful tour with a close contact with the animals – especially for children . Many animals are close enough to touch and feed. Even dangerous animals like our tigers can get only 5 cm close – of course behind the bulletproof glass window.
