Stuttgart Travel Tip:
Wilhelma - Zoological-Botanical Gardens
Wilhelma Zoo and Botanical Gardens, Stuttgart
Wilhelma, built as a royal palace, is now a zoo in Stuttgart. It is Europe's only large combined zoological and botanical garden and is home to over 8,000 animals from over 1,000 different species and countless exotic plants from over 5,000 species. The zoo is famous for keeping all four kinds of great apes, all in families with offspring, as well as for its aquarium featuring animals and plants from all over the world. The botanical gardens are renowned for containing Europe's biggest magnolia grove. It was also the home of the polar bear Wilbär.
The Wilhelma was originally a royal palace, in Moorish Revival style. After the second world war, it was gradually converted to its present day use. Besides animals and plants, the Wilhelma is therefore also worth visiting for its architecture.
Hours: The park is open every day of the year. The gates are always opened at 8:15 am. Depending on the month the park closes at different times, from 4 - 6pm (earlier in Winter).
Admission: Adults 12 €, Concessions 6 €, Family Tickets available.
