On a wild animal expedition at Dresden Zoo

At the heart of Dresden, not far from the famous Church of Our Lady, lies one of Germany's oldest zoos. People from all over the world come to spend an enjoyable day in the company of its 3,000 or so animals, representing around 300 species.

Dresden Zoo is among the city's most popular attractions, alongside famous sights such as the Semper Opera House, Zwinger Palace and Church of Our Lady. A delight for animal lovers of all ages, this scenic 13-hectare zoo also serves as a place of learning and as a facility for scientific research and conservation. Its many attractions include the Africa House, home to elephants, mandrills and naked mole rats, the savannah-like enclosure for lions and desert lynx and the Giraffe House, where you can watch these long-necked creatures at eye level from a raised gallery. Brandes House is a tropical enclosure populated by lion-tailed macaques, white-faced sakis and woolly monkeys, which you can watch climbing and playing on large outdoor areas that are separated from visitors only by moats. But there is also much more to discover in the animal kingdom at Dresden Zoo: from Easter and Halloween right the way through to Christmas, events take place throughout the year that make a visit to Dresden Zoo a very special experience.

Highlights

Dresden Zoo is ideal for families with children. Its underground zoo, whose many inhabitants include harvest mice, bumblebees and earthworms, is accessed by a slide, for example. Over at the petting zoo, there are Cameroon sheep, micropigs and a pantry full of mice just waiting to be discovered! The daily feeding displays are an exciting way to find out about the animals, and afterwards kids can let off steam at one of the adventure playgrounds. The free daily Punch and Judy shows are well worth seeing too. As well as being a fantastic leisure attraction, the zoo is also the city's biggest science education centre. The zoo school, founded in 1996, introduces children of all ages to ecology, environmental protection and the world of animals and animal behaviour. Dresden Zoo also takes part in numerous international breeding programmes – most notably for primates and parrots.

Dresden's film nights on the Elbe have taken the 'big' screen quite literally to heart. Not simply because this is Germany's largest open-air film festival but also because since 2004 the films have been shown on the world's biggest mobile screen, which measures a gigantic 448 square metres or 32 metres by 14 metres – offering a superlative cinematic experience.

The events take place on approximately 60 nights during the summer, around 50 of which take the form of film screenings including a number of German premieres. There are around 3,300 seats, 400 of which are particularly sought after because they are under cover and offer at-seat service.
The festival's name only tells half the story because some brilliant concerts also come under the film nights on the Elbe banner: R.E.M., Die Ärzte, Nelly Furtado and Die Fantastischen Vier are just a few of many who have appeared here. For these ten or so performances, the giant screen is rotated 90 degrees and handily becomes the stage's roof. All in all, the film nights on the Elbe offer an exceptional programme for around 150,000 people.
There's also one magical, free extra: for many, Dresden silhouetted against the evening sky is a highlight in itself. Many things have changed since the festival was founded in 1991, but this view forever stays the same, which surely makes the film nights on the Elbe the most beautiful open-air film and concert festival in Germany – and possibly even in Europe?
