Walding Tiergarten is situated on a hill in Mühlviertel, Upper Austria (Ober-Österreich) close to the town Linz.
It was developed on a former dairy-farm by the step-parents of the present owner Mrs Angela Mair.

In the past the two elephants were taken for walks in the nearby forest, but later they started fighting with each other so much so they can not be controlled anymore, and they are therefore since 1999 left separated in their own enclosures, and can not enymore be taken out for walks.
