The construction of the Heidelberg Zoo as an institution began in 1933, and it opened its doors to welcome the public at the end of the following year.
New facilities are added to the park periodically as an expansion system for possession of all types of wild, water and amphibious animals. The park embraces many rare and endangered animals, as well as children facilities, and is one of the tourist destinations in Germany and one of the prominent landmarks of Heidelberg.
