Explore one of the largest zoological and botanical gardens in Europe
Originally created for King William I in the mid-19th century, the Wilhelma Garden was at that time a Moorish garden. Today, home to more than 10,000 animals from 1,000 different species from all over the world over 280,000 m², it has become one of the largest gardens in Europe. You will have the opportunity to admire rare animals such as polar bears, African gorillas, Himalayan goats, spider monkeys and rhinos, who all flourish in an environment which perfectly imitates their natural habitats.
During your visit, watch the birds in the aviaries and be sure to admire the butterflies, tarantulas and fossils in the insectarium.
An enchanting botanical garden
Comprising thousands of different plant varieties, head to the botanical garden for a change of scenery. In this environment reminiscent of the tropical forests of South America, you will have plenty of time to marvel at many families of orchids, cacti, exotic fruits, succulents and tree-like ferns. It's impossible to miss the imposing Titan arum, straight from Sumatra.
