Interior attractions include the font by Hans Krumper, the red marble monuments by Erasmus Grasser, and the 15th-century Schrenk Altar with its sculptures of the Crucifixion and the Last Judgment.

Tierpark Hellabrunn is the name of the zoological garden in the Bavarian capital Munich. The 36 hectare (89 acre) park is situated on the right bank of the river Isar in the southern part of Munich, near the quarter of Thalkirchen as you can see in Munich zoo map. As the groundwater level here is rather high and the water is of very good quality, Munich zoo can cover its needs for freshwater by using its own wells. On February 25, 1905, the Verein Zoologischer Garten München eV (Engl. Society of the Zoological Garden of Munich ) was founded and the Hellabrunn area was chosen as the location for the zoo. On August 1, 1911, the zoo, planned by the famous architect Emanuel von Seidl, opened for the public for the first time, but in 1922, it had to be closed down due to the inflation in Germany. After the re-opening on May 23, 1928, the Tierpark Hellabrunn became the first Geo-Zoo in the world and engaged in the controversial back-breeding to "recreate" extinct animals like Heck cattle (to mimic the Aurochs ) and theTarpan. During World War II , the zoo sustained massive damage due to allied air raids , but it was able to reopen in May 1945. In 1970, a badly needed plan for the renovation of the zoo was drawn up.
Under the direction of Prof. Dr. Henning Wiesner, Hellabrunn or Munich zoo is today the largest zoo in Europe . The preserves of the animals — about 7,700 vertebrates of 340 different species —are arranged along geographic lines. The Tierpark Hellabrunn is very active in breeding, reintroduction and conservation projects. In 2003, about 1.4 million people visited Hellabrunn. It has more than 4,500 specimens of about 580 species as its shown in Munich zoo map. It is called the Geo-zoo because the animals are grouped according to continent of origin. Hellabrunn specializes in breeding species threatened with extinction, such as the Przewalski horse, and back breeding to species already extinct, such as the aurochs, a wild ox said to have become extinct in the 1620s.
