The reptile house in Klagenfurt was opened on April 1, 1976 by Frederick Happ. He founded it through exhibitions at the largest natural history museums in Germany , Switzerland and Austria in the years 1968-76. And partly by taking a loan. With the construction of the reptile zoo in Klagenfurt, he fulfilled his lifelong dream. Here he met his wife Helga, a dedicated teacher who – like him – since childhood had a passionate for the critters .

After paying the entrance fee we enter the house with a lot of snakes, tortoises and small critters like bird eating spiders as well as crocodiles. Going out side there are some dens for reptiles in sommer - most surprisingly might be that you find a rattle snake (Maybe europes only out door rattle snake enclosure) Following the house we then to the left have a photo area where you can take a picture with a snake. Its followed by a lake where you might find some local amphibians. Around the corner is an enclosure for local snakes, followed by giant tortoises. Behind them is a small dinosaur garden
