DescriptionA completely different experience is offered at the Wilhelma in Stuttgart where plant-life meets animal kingdom. Here, the Amazonia building isn’t just an indoor tropical mountain forest with palms, mahogany, bromelias, orchids, mangroves and bananas, it is also home to monkeys, birds, reptiles and amphibians.
Visitors will find special interest in the park’s hundreds of trees as well as the Kois carp pond in the Moorish Garden which displays an example of the world’s largest water lily plants (whose gigantic leaves can support a weight of up to 70 kilos).
Inside the Moorish Villa itself, different sections are dedicated to ferns and tropical edible plants with the central part being reserved for exotic birds and nocturnal animals. Also, the historic greenhouses proudly show off the park’s collection of 150 year old camellias.
