Visiting the Kaisergarten in Oberhausen

Earlier this month, I went to the Kaisergarten in Oberhausen, Germany. I almost forgot I took some pictures. The Kaisergarten is supposed to be a memorial to “Kaiser Wilhelm l.” and got its name in celebration of Wilhelm’s 100. anniversary in 1898. The park itself is much older though.There’s also a free-to-visit animal enclosure located in this city park. However, I don’t want to distribute photos of these animals, except for the beautiful free-running peacock, because I really dislike cage housing of animals. Don’t get me wrong, the animals of this park could be much worse off, compared to regular zoos, but the keeping of these animals isn’t as good and species-appropriate as promised on their website. However, enjoy the scenery and that awesome peacock.
