Röhrensee © Stadtgartenamt Bayreuth

The zoo in the south of the city, is one of the most popular recreational areas of the population of Bayreuth. The lake exists since 1891 in its present form. The name goes back to the fact that wooden tubes, for the first water pipes in Bayreuth, were stored here.

The Röhren­park, a park for plants, animals and people.

A popular zoo

The zoo is looked after by the city garden office and it offers besides recrea­tion, rela­xa­tion and distrac­tion from daily stress in quiet surroun­dings also infor­ma­tion about a diver­sity of wild life.
In 1973 the first animal enclo­sures were set up. Since then it is an indis­pensable part for the city and the people of Bayreuth. The park allows meaningful leisure time in surroun­dings with beau­tiful flowers and diffe­rent animals is it a true nature encounter. An important mission of the zoo is to combine rela­xa­tion with educa­tion. This is why there is no entrance fee for this family friendly faci­lity. It is always open to the public. Special features of the park and its inha­bi­tants are presented on attrac­tively desi­gned panels. Indi­vi­dual adven­ture stations allow a special perspective.

Genera­tion playground

The large play­ground pres­ents itself in an active and lively way with the diffe­rent clim­bing possi­bi­li­ties, the generous sand play area, fitness equip­ment for all genera­tions and with a construc­tion for water games.
Boots for hire, kiosk and restau­rants round up the range of offers.
