Founded in 1868 by a group of industrialists from Mulhouse, this park was a model for zoological gardens in the 19th century. With its romantic landscaping, it houses remarkable collections of exotic and local plants. The zoological park is home to more than 1200 animals belonging to 170 different species, and is part of a programme for breeding endangered species.
