Education

The education department, the Wilhelmaschule, offers exciting guided tours on fascinating zoological and botanical topics.

The department is run by two biologists with many years experience teaching people about the fascination of the natural world.  Together with a dozen zoo educators who also have a university degree in biology they make up the team of the Wilhelmaschule.

We put a strong emphasis on conveying contents as vividly as possible, thus awakening enthusiasm for nature in all its diversity.
The tours are designed to complement the schools’ curricula, but different contens are also available on prior arangement. Even if it is an excursion day that brings you  to Wilhelma, our guided tours are suitable for conveying the zoo experience to your pupils in an entertaining way.

In order to ensure intensive care of the pupils, guided tours are not offered for whole classes but in smaller groups of a maximum of 18 pupils.
