Opel-Zoo: A path that splits

The philosopher's path connects Königstein and Kronberg and leads through the middle of the Opel-Zoo. It is mainly used by pedestrians and cyclists as a footpath. However, soon the philosopher will no longer be accessible to the Public, because he is part of the zoo.

The efforts to reach an agreement between the municipalities and the Tiergarten Park are a failure, as the king, Steiner has communicated to the mayor Leonhard Helm (CDU). It was, for years, been in negotiations, such as the footpath as a connection for the citizens of the two cities can stay. The failure of the agreement to Helms words, at the demand of the king Steiner city Council for an additional entrance to the Zoo. The zoo would have to set up a new Fund. To do this, he can see but not be able to.

the town of Kronberg, on the territory of which the Zoo is located can have, alone, on the philosopher's walk. It is intended, presumably, as long – Tiergarten strike. The path remains in the property of the city of Kronberg, but as a private part of the zoo area. King's stone does not prevent the view of the helmet. Also an action was futile, because as a fallback, a different path is available, the head of the South side of the Zoo around the route with the Scheibel Bush trail. Currently, the philosopher's path of caution because of the Corona pandemic is closed anyway temporarily.

longtime point of contention in the Taunus

the philosopher's path is already for more than ten years of fighting. So far, the public footpath cuts the Opel-Zoo into two parts. The way is older than the zoo, the Zoo in the course of the years – on both sides of the path. Therefore, the Zoo must show visitors that want to switch from one side to the other, in a cottage of your admission ticket. The Zoo hopes that the way will be part of the zoo in order to spare his guests of this procedure. So far, the philosopher's walk is also in the night accessible, according to the zoo it is, therefore, to destruction again and again, in which animals come to harm.
