The hill of the Japanese Garden was created from the debris of the Zoo and its surroundings after World War II. Initially there was an open air stage here, which however was unutilised for major parts of the year occupying this otherwise rather narrow area. The Japanese Garden was developed in its place and a park library was also in the plans, although it only operated for a few years. The Zoo made the decision to create a Japanese Garden in 1958. During the almost ten years of the preparatory work the former stage hill was covered by grass, the topography of the area was established and the roads renovated.
