In the open-air large cat area, cheetahs wander about. Apes climb to and fro in the tropics building. And in the petting zoo, guests can even pet the animals! Gaze on large-mouthed rhinos, bears, lynx, antelope, and other animals. A particular favorite among guests are the vultures which roam about the grounds. These birds seem to like the rocky cliffs of the Hellbrunn mountain in Salzburg where the zoo is located. Visitors are also invited to watch when these vultures are fed – from a safe distance, of course.
