Rheine Nature Zoo

The motto at Rheine Nature Zoo could be "Right in the middle of things instead of just being there". Experiencing animals up close, raising awareness for the need to protect species and the environment, and at the same time creating a home for the animals that is as close to nature as possible. This is the motto of Rheine Nature Zoo.

Experiencing animals, understanding nature - Rheine Nature Zoo makes it possible

Around 1000 animals in 100 species live in Rheine Nature Zoo and there are many small and big stars among them. Birds find ideal conditions in the stork reserve and wading birds also feel particularly at home in the nature zoo. In the monkey forest you can come into direct contact with the animals and a little further on you can observe seals even under water. The new bear enclosure for the sloth bears, who share their home with the golden jackals, is particularly beautiful. Of course, there are many other animals such as llamas, coatis, camels, zebras, calicoes, and and and.... The best way to find out for yourself is to visit.

Small hands and big eyes

What could be more exciting than experiencing animals up close? The Nature Zoo in Rheine is a meeting place for people and animals. Understanding nature, respecting animals and their behaviour, understanding connections between animals and their environment - the nature zoo is a "school for life". Under the microscope, water fleas become as huge as elephants, the smallest living creatures grow into big stars. Take a walk on the berry trail or conquer the forest adventure path.

From mid-March to mid-October, the information feedings will not only satisfy visitors' hunger, but also their thirst for knowledge. On Sundays and public holidays, as well as every day during the summer holidays, the keepers explain the background to the life and care of the zoo's inhabitants.

The storks of Rheine

As soon as it gets warmer in March, 100 pairs of white storks breed at and around the nature zoo until August. The storks of what is probably Germany's largest colony not only move around the nature zoo, but also on the surrounding meadows of the Salinenpark.

The elegant birds glide majestically above your heads between Bentlage Abbey and the Nature Zoo and populate the green spaces in a relaxed manner. A truly unique experience.
