Just over the road from the rail station is the zoo and was far bigger than we thought so spent longer than anticipated. They had a good selection of animals and we were passing when the polar bears were being fed and there is an observation window looking into the water and it was a delight to see a polar... More

I though it was nice to be small where it can turn into a 2-hour activity for kids. There is a small play ground, cafe, and boat ride (relaxing but expensive). What was particularly nice is the section where kids are allowed to touch young sheep and goats.

Great selection of animals with only a couple of empty cages. We got to see the penguins being fed and you can feed the carp and the farm animals for 20c. We... More

Nice gardens and easy lay out to follow. Easy stroller paths and child friendly atmosphere. Many of the cages were empty or under construction.

I've been to Karlsruhe many times and always enjoy going to walk through the zoo. It's not a big place, but it's wonderful for a relaxing stroll. The animal collection is relatively small, but there are other attractions - a rose garden, a fragrance garden, a small lake with some boats that run a circuit of the lake on an... More
