    Surely you can´t be looking for elephants in Europe or specifically Stuttgart but tell you what, even the ones in Wilhelma zoo are real. Originally King Wilhelm I of Württenberg intended to build a summer residence surrounded by adornment and buildings in a Mauritanian style, just like in a fairy tale. This formed the foundation of the present day Wilhelma containing over 8000 animals of about 1000 species. My favorites are the water bears which inspire with there elegant movements. The new tropical house is also fascinating. Moreover the zoo reflects King Wilhelms fantasy of a fairy castle.
