A fantastic zoo. Animals from all over the world, beautiful nature and parks, food on every corner. Also, you can take a ride in a boat on the lake. P.S. If you're in Karlsruhe on Lichterfest, it's a great thing to see. Visit the zoo in the evening and enjoy candles and lights.

I have been to this zoo a few times by now and it is a great place to spend a day. My other half had some business stuff to attend so my son and I made frequent trips to the zoo. It has all the things kids love - animals of course, boat ride, petting zoo with goats and chickens... More

It's rather small zoo but in my opinion it's perfect. You can find there a lot of great animals. Everything looks great and clean.

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
