The Korkeasaari Zoo will welcome visitors again from 3 May, said the City of Helsinki in a press release on Thursday.

The zoo’s five-month closure is coming to an end and the animals can once again be seen in their outdoor enclosures.

Most of the indoor enclosures, such as the tropical houses, however, will remain closed for coronavirus safety reasons.

The City of Helsinki will phase out the coronavirus restrictions imposed on its public spaces from the beginning of May, and, at the same time, the outdoor spaces of Korkeasaari will once again be opened to the public.

At the zoo, it will be possible to move around outside in individual groups, keeping adequate safety distances and good hygiene.

Korkeasaari’s animal houses will remain closed for the time being to avoid close contact.

The Korkeasaari Zoo is a non-profit foundation owned by Helsinki City Group. The objective of the foundation is to protect endangered species and natural biodiversity. Every visitor to the zoo supports the work carried out by Korkeasaari.
