Founded in 1860, Cologne Zoo is the third oldest Zoo in Germany.

The elephants were for many years kept in an old elephant house, a Moorish-looking building, that amazingly survived the bombing in World War II, but in 2004 a totally new area was changed into an "Elephant park" with a new house and the largest outdoor enclosure north of the Alps.
