Halloween in the Cologne Zoo!
Families and children can once again look forward to an animal-spooky spectacle in the Cologne Zoo. At Halloween, the zoo will be illuminated in ghostly light and the spirits of the night come to life. Nocturnal animals, such as the eagle owl, the cockroach and the bat, return to their rendezvous.
Walkings acts with dragons, cockroaches and giant squids lurk behind the bushes of the atmospheric illuminated zoo. Also fire breathers, witches and other mythical creatures keep visitors in suspense. The "puppet theater Cologne" with Andreas Blaschke performs the imaginative puppet show "Zwackelmanns Zauberküche" several times in the evening, where young and old have to find the right exit in the 12 by 12 meter labyrinthine maze and the mysterious feeling course - there is something for everyone.
If you like it musically, enjoy the atmospheric live-participation concerts of children's songwriter Uwe Reetz with songs about witches, magicians and mysterious castles. Fire and didgeridoo shows enchant the audience several times in the evening.
There are many activities such as pumpkin carving, stick bread crumbs or neon craft. The stations are distributed over the entire zoo grounds.
Creepy and crawly animals are the focus in the aquarium. Whether it's the cockroach race or the walk to the tarantulas, visitors can immerse themselves in the fascinating world of spiders and insects.
Elephant park, rainforest house, Eulenkloster, Hippodom and Madagascarhaus are open on Halloween night! Visitors experience exciting special feeding here.
Please note that no glass bottles or alcoholic drinks may be taken to the zoo. Visitors are welcome to dress up according to Halloween (no horror clown and body costumes with masks). Please do not bring any external wagon with you to the zoo.
Tickets soon at the Zookasse, in our online shop or at KölnTicket.
