Traveling to Germany do not forget to visit Tierpark Hagenbeck - the ideal destination for animal lovers

One of the standout creations of Tierpark Hagenbeck zoo's founder is the use of moats instead of cages to separate wildlife from visitors, creating a sense of closeness and visualization. 
Tierpark Hagenbeck , zoo in Hamburg (Germany) was founded by a man named Carl Hagenbeck, who likes to collect exotic animals so much that he opens a zoo to display them. First opened in the early 1900s, the zoo is still operated and owned by the Hagenbeck family. This is a destination not to be missed when you visit the German city ​​of Hamburg . 

Information you need to know about Tierpark Hagenbeck

What reassures animal lovers at Hagenbeck Zoo is that the majority of animals are not locked up in cages, but live freely in areas similar to their natural habitat. Instead of using cages or fences to separate visitors from the animals, the moats will do that.

Inside a large glass dome was the residence of orangutans. You can climb the stairs to the cabin to unleash the panoramic view. This animal is very active, moving continuously, as if performing a play together for the audience to enjoy.

In the man-made Himalayan Tahr Rocks area, visitors can climb the ladder to the top to see the different angles of the zoo, while mountain goats clamber slowly on the steep rock side with no stairs. . 
The Hamburg zoo always makes you feel like you are somewhere very secluded, especially when you see a swarm of Antarctic penguins gathering together right in front of you. Walrus, seals and flamingos along the way give you more “firsts” encountering wildlife . Unlike the feeling of visiting animals in an iron cage, you can easily approach the animals intuitively and feel a strong connection with nature.
