    Using our lake water

    Sustainability is a top priority at Knie’s Kinderzoo. During the construction of our new facilities we developed and implemented specific procedures to ensure the efficient use of energy and other resources. One example of our sustainable approach is the use of the nearby Obersee lake as a combined resource for both energy and water.
