A few weeks ago we reported to you that the volunteer-run Kobelt Zoo in the Frankfurt district of Schwanheim must remain closed for the time being due to the strict Corona requirements. Because a control of necessary negative Coronatests and the observance of the mask obligation was simply not to be mastered for the employees of the zoo. But now, with the decreased incidence, the requirements have also been significantly relaxed, which is why an opening is now finally feasible - however, as in the previous season, for the time being only on Sundays from 11 am to 5 pm. It will get underway on 04 July 2021.
Although no appointments will be made and no contact details will need to be collected, there are still some rules that all visitors must abide by:
The designated one-way rule on zoo grounds must be followed
Masks are required in the entrance and exit areas, as well as out of the restrooms.
A maximum of 100 people are allowed to visit the zoo at any one time.
The coffee booth, the reptile house, as well as the playground must unfortunately still remain closed. Nevertheless, the reopening is a positive signal. Because especially for a small zoo like this, the current situation is incredibly difficult. Therefore, it should be a matter of course for all visitors to support the voluntary helpers by abiding by the rules. And at the exit to leave a small donation, of course, is also welcome.
It's nice that this popular place in Schwanheim can finally reopen and finally receive small and large visitors again. More info is available at: http://kobelt-zoo.de/
