The Tiergarten of Mönchengladbach, Germany is just a small zoological garden but one that is fun – especially for families. They don’t have too many species there but you can get pretty close to most of them. Especially the alpacas, donkeys, horses and pigs will expect that you have something for them in your pockets. Fortunately, you can buy some fodder for the animals at the cash desk. That way you can easily attract them and pet some nice animals. In addition to domestic animals, they also give a home to species like kangaroos and seals.
The entrance to the Tiergarten is pretty cheap in comparison to other zoological gardens: 4.50 Euros per adult. Therefore you can see 400 animals on 4.3 hectares of ground. If you want to get there – it is located in the city quarter Odenkirchen a little bit outside of the city. Bus 002 takes you there. After reaching the bus stop you need to walk some meters up the hill but it is an easy walk. Currently, they don’t plan to have further species there but try to continuously improve the living conditions for their present residents.
