Münster All-Weather Zoo

Münster All-Weather Zoo

The Allwetterzoo Münster is not only one of the best-known zoos in Germany, but also one of the most beautiful. And when the weather throws a spanner in the works for visitors at other zoos, many animals can be observed on dry feet at the Allwetterzoo.

Where else in Münsterland can you feed elephants or accompany penguins on a walk than at the Allwetterzoo? The zoo in the cathedral city is now even known nationwide for its closeness to animals. Not least, 100 episodes of the ARD series "Penguin, Lion & Co." have contributed to the fact that Bavarian or Saxon cars are increasingly parked in front of the zoo. Around 600,000 visitors are attracted to the all-weather zoo every year.

Three at one go

The Allwetterzoo has even more to offer than approx. 3,000 animals and a good 300 animal species. The Westphalian Horse Museum in the middle of the zoo is unique. The museum, which is well worth seeing, is dedicated to the natural and cultural history of the horse. On an area of 1,000 square metres, visitors are invited on a voyage of discovery through the permanent exhibition. Highly frequented special exhibitions, such as "Photographer of the year 2019", are the highlights of the museum's programme. Horses in action can be experienced in the neighbouring "Hippomaxx" arena.

The seal harbour also promises a lot of action. Several times a day, the Californian sea lions perform here. Admission to the Allwetterzoo also includes access to the Westphalian Horse Museum and the Seal Haven.

We have tested the "Night at the Zoo" programme for you

Everyone has probably been to the zoo during the day. But what do the animals do when the sun goes down? You can find out at the "Night at the Zoo" event. On these evenings there is a wide range of food and drinks to be enjoyed to the sounds of the various artists. The programme is rounded off with a spectacular fire show. Our colleague Kristina was there and tells you on the MünsterlandBlog how she experienced the event.
