Frankfurt Zoo, where there are lots of wild monkeys

The Frankfurt Zoo, founded in 1858 and located in the heart of the city, is one of the oldest zoological gardens in the world. It is home to over 4,500 animals representing some 500 different species.

The zoo became known throughout the world after World War II thanks to the work of its legendary director Professor Bernhard Grzimek, a prominent scientist-zoologist, author of several films about animals (one of them got "Oscar"). He was among the first to implement new, more human methods of keeping animals in captivity.

The pavilion, where Madagascar fauna representatives live in the conditions of artificial night, is named after Grzimek. The Exotarium also excites the visitors’ interest: this is where penguins, exotic fish, reptiles, amphibians and insects live. Another popular place is Borgori-Wald, an imitating jungle, which is inhabited by a variety of primates. By the way, the Frankfurt Zoo gained a worldwide reputation for being the first to raise all the main types of subhuman primates in captivity.

For younger visitors there is a playground in the Zoo where children can feed and pet the young animals; pony rides are organized on weekends.
