Tiergarten der Stadt Nürnberg was opened in May 1912 in the state of Bayerischen, but after nazies seized power, the zoo was finally located in the southeast of Nürnberg. The zoo is home to 2680 animals and 280 different species. Their first gorilla was a female called Anne that arrived at Nürnberg in March 1963 and who was joined six months later by Schorsch, a young three years old male. The first gorilla birth of the park happened in 1972 when Liane had a male baby sired by Fritz and who was named also Schorchs in honour of the original male dead in 1970.

Gorillas are kept together with magots at a big outside prairie of 2000 m² with ropes and trunks as enrichment. It was rebuilt a few years ago and is now a combination between the new and the old The indoor house is also visible by visitors.
