2 Lovely Strasbourg Animal Parks

Where to watch and pet domestic animals in Strasbourg: animal parks, a nice place to spend an afternoon. Parc animalier Friedel and Parc Animalier S.R.P.O

Strasbourg’s animal parks, shown below, are outstanding in terms of animal welfare. Furry friends have a huge area to roam free and great care. Surrounded by a wide variety of trees, both parks are the perfect escape during summer heat waves.

1. Parc animalier Friedel

The exceptional feature of Parc Animalier Friedel is that you have direct contact with animals, not just watch them through the fence.

Park is great for kids and animal lovers: there is a wide variety of domestic animals:

It is hard to find challenging play structures in Strasbourg for bigger kids, like 8 y.o. and older. City Parc Friedel is one of few where even teenagers have fun. (You can hear them chirping in the background :D)

2. Parc Animalier S.R.P.O

At the heart of the forest, Parc Animalier S.R.P.O is a true haven for waterbirds. (We visited many places before, but have never ever seen anything like this!)

Hundreds of animals and a large variety of birds live in the park: hens, goats, rabbits, pheasants, deer, etc.
