The Zoo Karlsruhe lies on the site of an old garden, featuring some very interesting exhibition constructions. It resembles a park, with trees, clearings, alleys, and ponds, and a suspended walkway running across its middle. There is a lookout platform on top of a small hill with a binocular that allows a panoramic view over the city.

Funny animals, its not sooo gigantic but definitely worth to be seen jf you are here in visit. Its also quite afordable. If you want - then you can take a boat tour and feed some fish. I had some funny moments there

We had a great time at the zoo. There were some areas that were under construction, but overall the zoo was very nice. Beautiful gardens, nice boat ride, and lots of great animals (elephants, giraffes, polar bears). My kids loved the giant chess boards, and there's some nice playgrounds for younger kids. There's restaurants to get food, or you can... More

Really glad I decided to go to this park. I don't have a big zoo where I live and don't often have the oppertunity to go to one. This is a beautiful garden in a middle of town. It has to offer many flowers, gardens, animals and a few activity for children. There are not particually many animals but they... More

The zoo is really beautiful ! A lot of animals with nice spaces suitable for each of them. There is a giant chess table with pieces the size of a human :)

I was amazed by this zoo. At first glance I thought it was just a park with some few common Zoo animals, like Zebras and monkeys. To my surprise it is a well-served zoo... they have Lions, Elephants, Giraffes, big sentiment of Monkeys and even polar bears... YES, you read it correctly!

The grounds are beautiful, the park space is lovely, with lots of beautiful places to sit down after walking around. We like to visit the zoo in every city we travel to, and this was was one of the prettiest, with many diverse animals. They also do not charge much for the entrance fee.

Think of this zoo as a really nice park that happens to have a number of animal exhibits and you'll enjoy it more. The exhibits themselves tend toward the old-fashioned and small. Don't eat there (see my review of the Zoo Terrassen Restaurant). The playgrounds for kids are nice and the gardens are beautiful. It is a nice day to... More
