The private zoo in Romanshorn was developed from the animal trader Karl Künzler, who also trained animals and gave shows with the big cats during weekends. The famous big cat trainer René Strickler started his career in this zoo, when he was 21 years old.

During the seventies Karl Künzler also had elephants.

After Karl Künzler had heart problems, his wife Elsi Künzler took over the zoo, but had to close it in 1977 due to financial problems.

Their son, Martin Künzler train birds, and rent out pigeons for marriage ceremonies.
