The Zoo that Grew from a Private Farm

The only Zoo in Lower Bavaria grew from a personal farm of a family, who lived near Straubing’s park in the 1930s. In their yard they kept deer, foxes, pheasants, peacocks, allowing people walking around the park to see them. Straubing’s Burgermeester took care that monkeys and tigers should appear in this zoo. In wartime animals evacuated from zoos across Germany were brought here. Today it is home to over 1700 animals of 200 species including the endangered Siberian tiger, Indian lions, banded penguin, and hyacinth macaws. There is also an aquarium with the inhabitants of the Danube. The zoo also has a farmhouse, where you can learn what the livestock was like many centuries ago.
