Hagenback's Zoo

Arctic Encounters I'm guessing most people are familiar with the famous African Panorama at the Tierpark, this is the arctic one. It is complete with polar bear, reindeer, seals (not shown) and eskimos.

      Arctic Encounters

      I'm guessing most people are familiar with the famous African Panorama at the Tierpark, this is the arctic one. It is complete with polar bear, reindeer, seals (not shown) and eskimos.

      I have seen photo of the eskimos in theis exhbit, they were housed with siberian huskies

      Eskimos? As in people...?
      Lol looks like an interesting exhibit. Is it still in use?
    • ^Chris^
      Yes. As in the people, it's hard to imagine though.

      Amazingly, the enclosure still houses polar bears, which it seems hugely unsuitable for by modern standards. Here's the exhibit these days- [thumb=4377;586;DSCF6582.JPG]Arctic Panorama at Hagenbecks, Hamburg[/thumb]

      The front exhibit contains sea lions not seals now.

      Why's this Pic in the Berlin folder?!

      Something many people don't realise is that Hagenbeck was also into ethnography, and brought many different races of people from all over the world to Germany for the public to see. When I visited the zoo in the 1980's there were authentic Chinese stone statues and North American Indian Totem poles on display in the zoo.
    There are no comments to display.
