Trip Planner: Europe / France / Grand Est / Haut-Rhin / Mulhouse / Parc Zoologique & Botanique de Mulhouse
Parc Zoologique & Botanique de Mulhouse is a 25 hectare (62 acre) public zoo and botanical garden created in 1868, and restored in 1950 after sustaining heavy damage during World War II. You can view more than 1,200 animals representing 190 species, including many species of tropical birds and monkeys, and 94 rare or endangered species. Walk through the children's zoo enclosure to interact with Moroccan dwarf goats, Indian runner ducks, Brahma chickens, and potamochoerus, a relative of the pig. Next to the children's play area, you'll see rabbits, Poitou donkeys, and llamas. The botanical gardens feature 400 kinds of iris in the spring, and 100 varieties of dahlias in summer. Shrubs and trees are grown into fantastic shapes, and there's a collection of rare and endangered plants, including Catharanthus from Madagascar, the Canary Islands, and Madeira. The park also features a sensory garden for the blind, with signs in Braille, and plants chosen for their smell and feel.

Parc Zoologique & Botanique de Mulhouse Reviews
Lovely zoo in a beautiful garden. Established over 150 years and has some magnificent old trees. Small but interesting variety of animals. Wolves and polars bear and lemurs were my favourites. more »
Went to see the great plants.... came away thinking we had inadvertently paid to keep animals in psychological distress.. The polar bear was showing obvious signs of stress/madness from being there..... more »
Very lovely zoo with lots of space. The highlight is of course the small polar bear Nanuq, who is a joy to watch with her mother. Some cages for the monkeys are rather small and old. Some exhibitions like the ones for the African pigs seem to be hidden away in the darkest corner even so they are lovely animals. However I really enjoyed my time here as the have very different animals like wolf or snow leopards. The only complaint is that no food or drinks are being sold here during the winter months. I find it rather strange, that the zoo cannot even open one shop for the visitors with some hot coffee.
Nice zoo but too little space for the animals like the lions...
