Cycling for the zoo – an idea once developed by the friends of Eberswalde Zoo has now become an annual highlight. The first zoo tour in 2005 over a distance of 320 kilometres ended at Rostock zoo and resulted in a donation of 30,000 euro. Every year, hundreds of zoo and cycling fans take part in this charitable cycling event.

„Our tigers are the winners“. With the help of donations from the bike tours we were able to build many attractions at the zoo, like our glacial landscapes with playground and the enclosure for the endangered Amur tiger. The tour is organised by Verein der Freunde und Förderer des Zoologischen Gartens Eberswalde e.V.
