Münster features an Allwetterzoo, which is an official way of saying that it has both indoor and outdoor parts. Much like any zoo, I think. We went there last weekend to get out of the apartment – kind of a silly thing to do, since the reason we were stuck in the apartment was due to the Arctic wind outside, and then we ended up walking 20 minutes there and back. And spending time outside trying to take pictures with frozen fingers. All this cold must be good for the heart. Or something.
However, this warning was probably the highlight of our trip:
Especially when we actually got to see it happen, from a lucky few steps away. This probably wouldn’t be as much of an issue if people weren’t allowed to bring their dogs into the zoo. And then hold them up to the cages and encourage them to check out the animals. And then be surprised when this upsets the tiger, prompting him to pee all over everyone in self-defense. We also saw dogs nose-to-nose with sea lions during the indoor show. Seems like a recipe for something bad to happen.
The zoo costs 14 euros for adults. There are special family days a few times per year where that drops to 10 euros. There is also an aquarium, a petting zoo and a horse museum.
