Zoological and Botanical Garden in Mulhouse

The Mulhouse Zoological and Botanical Park is one of the oldest zoos in France. Born in 1868, the Mulhouse Zoological and Botanical Park celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2018. When it was created, the horticulturist GEIGER Père was entrusted with the layout of the areas (earth movements, paths, fences) and the planting. Between 1873 and 1882, a botanical garden was created. From 1885, the tree and shrub species were labelled. In more than a century, it has grown, evolved, been abandoned and succeeded...

Today, the Mulhouse Zoological and Botanical Park has 1,200 animals in a garden that is home to over 3,000 plants. The Ministry of Culture and Communication has awarded the Zoological and Botanical Park the "Jardin remarquable" label.

Of the almost 170 animal species presented by the Zoological and Botanical Park, 90 are threatened with extinction in the wild. The Park is therefore involved in nearly 100 international breeding and conservation programmes. For nearly 30 years the park has been working in the wild to protect the last populations of lemurs, gibbons, cercopithecines, turtles and capuchins. A pioneer since 1982 and an expert in the reproduction of endangered species, the park presents its residents as ambassadors for their wild cousins in order to raise awareness of biodiversity protection among its many visitors. At the same time, more than 200 endangered plant species from the Alsace Botanical Conservatory are presented in the park; they are the subject of a conservation programme and in-depth scientific collaboration.

Aesthetic and entertaining, the park is also instructive and full of surprises: flowerings, births... With more than 400,000 visitors in 2017, the park is the leading tourist site in the Haut-Rhin and the 3rd in Alsace... and perhaps one of the most prestigious parks in France!
