Wilhelma opens under restrictions

Current rapid test and masks are mandatory

Only outdoor areas are accesssible - Reduced rates available

Due to the new legal situation, zoos and botanical gardens are allowed to open their outdoor areas to guests who present the negative result of a current Corona rapid test. Because of the restrictions only a reduced entrance fee is charged.

Only documented results from official testing stations are accepted (i.e. no self-tests). They must be no older than 24 hours. Children under the age of six are exempted. 

Exceptions are made for individuals with full vaccination protection and those who have recovered from COVID-19 in the past six months. Either way documentation needs to be shown.

For the safety of our guests, our staff and our animals, the following precautions also apply: mask, distancing, online ticket. Masks complying with medical standards or the FFP2 standard are mandatory for mouth-to-nose protection, which is required throughout the site. Children under the age of six are exempt, and an everyday mask is sufficient for children aged six to 14.

To prevent waiting lines at the entrance, a ticket for an admission time slot must be booked online for each visit. This also applies to free visits by Annual Pass holders and members of the Association of Wilhelma Friends and Supporters. All ticket booths will remain closed. All guests may stay until the park closes at 8 p.m.

A visitor limit of 4,000 people per day is enforced in order to provide ample space for each individual. The animal and plant houses remain closed for infection control due to reduced ventilation. The open-air aviary and the petting enclosure at the show farm, however, are accessible.

Vouchers for annual passes are available in our voucher store.
