Le zoo de Cologne
Riehler Straße 173
Zen at the Zoo
Even if the holidays are over, September still has some lovely weather. To keep busy on days off and Sundays with the family, head to Cologne Zoo. Divided into three sections (the park, aquarium and vivarium), it's a peaceful haven, relaxing and Zen. Little ones get to run around and use up all their energy; they ask questions and really listen to the answers.
Founded in 1860 by the inhabitants of Cologne, the zoo opened in the 1920s and was practically destroyed during the war. Two years later, in 1947 it reopened and was made bigger. In the 1970s, it doubled its surface area to reach more than 20 hectares! Today, it plays a pivotal role in Europe as many species threatened with extinction are bred and observed there on a daily basis.
The Cologne area provides my daughters and I with real quality of life. I like conviviality, healthy things, crafts and every kind of creativity. Together, we'll explore the side of Cologne that promotes the art of living. My little extra: the art of living.
