Little Red Riding Hood was mistaken

Ignorance and preconceptions were the reasons why wolves were displaced in Germany more than a hundred years ago. The younger schoolchildren will playfully get to know all about their return at the wolf enclosure so that the tales from Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf are banished forever.

Subject area:

  • Exploiting natural phenomena
  • Identifying animals and their typical characteristics
  • Animal–human relationship described using selective examples

Meeting point:
Schloss entrance


On elephant safari

On our voyage of discovery to the elephants, we first also explore the life of other animals, for example the gibbons of Southeast Asia and the Australian Bennett's tree-kangaroo. During the guided session, which is also very suitable for a project topic, we answer the following questions: How do African and Asian elephants differ? How much water do elephants drink per day? What type of things do they do with their trunks?

Subject areas:

  • Exploiting natural phenomena
  • Observing, documenting and evaluating the behaviour of an animal

Please bring with you:
Binoculars, if you have them

Meeting point:
Schloss entrance



Adapting to seasons

Animal life in harmony with the seasons

Why do birds sing less during the winter? Why is it that deers shed their antlers in the spring? Are animals aware of the seasons? This learning excursion, which predominantly takes place outdoors, allows the pupils to explore animal life in harmony with the seasons by observing the individual types of species. As a result, they get to know how animals adapt to the various seasons.

Subject area:

  • Plants – animals – habitats
  • Using information to organise and differentiate

Meeting point:
winter: Bärenschaufenster entrance
spring: Schloss entrance
