Lonely Planet review for Münchener Tierpark Hellabrunn
Around 5000 animals inhabit Munich's 'geo-zoo' (one with distinct sections dividing animals by continents). The Münchener Tierpark Hellabrunn, to the south of the city, was one of the first of its kind. The sprawling, well-maintained grounds are home to rhinos, elephants, deer and gazelles, as well as a special petting zoo, full of cuddly sheep, deer and lambs. To get there take the U3 to Thalkirchen or bus 52 from Marienplatz.
