SILBERSALZ Festival in the Zoo – "The Science of Love"

We're super happy, that Zoo Halle is this year a festival location once more, providing a programme mix of tours, talks and initiatives all to do with the subjects of "Love in the Animal Kingdom" and "Love between Humankind and Animals" – and that in all their mutuality. In the Animal-Love-Center as well as at various initiative stands, the human-animal relationships are being explored in detail. The most diverse aspects of these relations will be presented here in an entertaining and playful manner intended especially for younger visitors.
