Divided into the world's continents, you can travel around the world in a very short time at Salzburg Zoo. 140 species from all 5 continents live in the unique area in Hellbrunn, which stretches over 14 hectare; amongst the species are local and exotic animals.
Around 1,200 wild animals enjoy their lives in Hellbrunn with loving care and unique landscapes. The habitats were built with mostly natural materials in order to meet the animals requirements at Salzburg Zoo.
The spacious open air area and the indoor area are divided into the following continents:
Centrepiece of the Africa enclosure is the Savanna area with rhinos, zebras and antelopes. In the bird park you will meet pelicans, cranes or flamingos. Salzburg Zoo is also famous for its cheetah enclosure with the 60km/h quick prey simulator.
Watch the denizens of the surrounding mountains, like ibexes, chamois and marmots as well as the newly non-native wolfs, bears and lynxes. Red panda, lar gibbon and the mysterious snow leopard represent the Asian animal world.
