At the eastern end of the historic center of Hoyerswerda, right next to the local castle, you will find a small but very nice zoo. There is a nice tropical pavilion, ibex, teddy bear, camels and lots of other animals. The center of the zoo is a nice playground.

Tropical hall

Probably the biggest pride of the zoo in Hoyerswerda is its Tropical Hall. Crocodiles, pygmy hippos and a whole range of reptiles and fish live here.
