Take a walk on the wild side

The animals at the Kaiserslautern Zoo are noticeably more excited as the colder months disappear and the first rays of sun start breaking through the clouds.

To celebrate the new season, the zoo will hold it’s yearly Easter Festival from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday and Monday.

There will be great fun for everyone: A super slide, cakes, guided tours and horse carriage rides.

At 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. visitors can also enjoy the famous falcon flying show.

The Kaiserslautern Zoo is always a great place to spend a day.

In the amazing area of 17 acres of pure nature, visitors will find 60 different species with 360 exotic, wild and domestic animals from various countries.

Looking for a great place to go for your child’s next birthday?

The Kaiserslautern Zoo offers a great package. Visitors can book a guided tour for up to 20 children, which gives interesting and exciting information on the life of different animals.

Also, make sure to stop at the petting zoo and enjoy a close-up opportunity at petting and feeding the animals.

Especially for children, the zoo also offers a great playground area and nature adventure trails, where fun guessing games teach visitors about animals and plants in the area.

The famous “Zoo-Ralley” is a must for all. Team up, answer the zoo’s questions as soon as possible and take home your own “Zoo-Ralley Diploma.”

If all of this has made you hungry, there’s help for that, too. The Zoo Restaurant offers big and small meals and even special kid’s menus, which are great for birthday parties.

For those who want to cook for themselves there is a fantastic barbecue area that can be used for free.

The barbecue area has tables and benches and grilling coals to get your party started.
