Knie’s Kinderzoo would like to thank the following partners for their generous support
Knie’s Kinderzoo combines generations of tradition with cutting-edge innovation. The new Himmapan elephant park is an impressive example of that approach. In addition to our dedication to the region, St.Galler Kantonalbank is also committed to effectively combining tradition and innovation – which is why we are so proud to be mammoth partner of the new elephant park.
Knie’s Kinderzoo and St. Galler Kantonalbank – a dynamic partnership
Knie’s Kinderzoo has been a favourite destination in eastern Switzerland among visitors of all ages for over five decades. This extraordinary location is now an inseparable part of the city of Rapperswil-Jona and the Lake Zurich region. Knie’s Kinderzoo superbly integrates generations of tradition with cutting-edge innovation. The new Himmapan elephant park is an impressive example of that approach. This ambitious project – the largest in the history of Knie’s Kinderzoo – is an astonishing success that continues the Knie family's over-90-year tradition of loving caring for elephants. The extraordinary elephant facility demonstrates an unshakeable commitment to the conservation of this highly endangered species. At the same time, it provides these gentle giants with a supremely happy home and delights children of all ages. The St. Galler Kantonalbank is pleased to be mammoth partner of the new elephant park. The partnership between Knie’s Kinderzoo and St. Galler Kantonalbank is based on shared fundamental values, such as tradition and regional commitment.
For over 140 years, SGKB has grown together with the region of eastern Switzerland and enjoyed close ties with the community. As a canton bank, SGKB lives up to its unique responsibilities and demonstrates its strong commitment by supporting all aspects of civic and cultural life in eastern Switzerland. The bank actively promotes cultural and recreational diversity in all regions where it does business. In keeping with our slogan "growing together", we're proud of our successful partnership with the Knie family, and thank them for their generations of commitment to the children's zoo. We wish everyone involved in this impressive building project a successful sprint to the finish, and are eagerly anticipating the opening ceremony in May.
