Opening hours:

ZOO Ústí nad Labem is open all year round.
Summer season: (1.4. - 30.9.) 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Winter season: (1.11. - 28.2.) 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
March and November: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Buses and trolleybuses run from the centre to the city to the ZOO. There are two entrances to the ZOO, with the main entrance in Drážďanská Street. Drivers can park in front of the main entrance to the ZOO or during the summer season at the car park by the upper entrance.


There are two self-service restaurants in the lower part of the ZOO near the main entrance. These are open all year round. Restaurant Koliba is also open in the upper part of the ZOO during the summer, whilst there is a small shop next to the Exotic House where you can buy souvenirs.


Children are catered for in our “Children’s World” (laminated models of animals with slides), the “Children’s ZOO” (a place where children can come into contact with certain species of domesticated animals), and the “Dinosaur Nature Trail” (wooden and artificial models of prehistoric animals).



The ZOO is home to a number of rare and exotic animals, with its main aim at present being to preserve and breed endangered species. Nonetheless, we can’t forget about our visitors and that’s why we also take on the role of a place of science, education, and relaxation. Each and every ZOO tries to make an impression on as many visitors as possible, both young and old, and to familiarise them with the diversity of nature and explain to them the irreplaceable function that ZOOs have.

For many years now the ZOO in Ústí nad Labem has offered its visitors something extra on top of regular tours and uses the natural abilities of the animals kept here for these performances. Some performances can be seen all year round, with others only on view during the summer season. In all cases we hope that you will find something to choose from our colourful range of performances, all prepared for you by our animals.

!!! N.B. Attractions may be cancelled due to bad weather (ice, heavy rain, etc.) or for technical reasons (cleaning the pool, urgent repairs, etc.)!!!
