Whether online or at our pay window, when buying a ticket for our zoo you have the possibility of voluntarily donating a ‘Wildlife Conservation Euro’, - just a small amount, but one that has a large impact when it goes to where it is needed most. With this ‘Wildlife Conservation Euro’ we want to motivate as many of our visitors as possible to work together to conserve biological diversity. Selected projects that have convinced our zoo team of their long-term work will profit from these ‘Wildlife Conservation Euro’ proceeds. All these projects work to protect animal species whose existence is threatened in their native habitat. In particular the focus is on the protection of dolphins, gorillas, African penguins and Madagascar fossas. Further project co-operations are expected to follow in the near future.
The Zoo Duisburg can be easily reached by car from all directions via the A3 and A40 motorways. The Duisburg-Kaiserberg exit leads directly to the zoo.
The zoo car parks at the main entrance on Mülheimer Straße (Google Maps car parks) and on Carl-Benz-Straße (side entrance - currently closed) are signposted. Additional parking is available at the nearby university (about 5 minutes walk to the zoo). The parking fee at the zoo car park is €4.00.
Please note that parking is banned on the side street "Am Zoo", where compliance to this rule is checked regularly.
