We had a great time. The zoo is arranged like an north African garden. Lot's of animals. I recommend the ape-house with gorillas and shimpanses. There is also a farm. The restaurant close to the camels offers food which is quite nice and the tigers where really impressive.

Although not the greatest place to visit in winter, if you have children that need activity, try the zoo.

It's a big area with many interesting exhibits. Wonderful for children (they also love the many playgrounds along the way). The botanical gardens are great. However, it's a good idea to bring a packed lunch, as the food is horendously expensive and not very good quality.

You would get impressed by the large space this zoo is taking with big gardens and vast green spaces for relaxation.I enjoyed very much the butterflies exhibition where they are allowed to fly around with the visitors and the crocodiles house with the rare albino croc. well worth a visit...

The zoo visits in any city is my passion. So I vote for this Zoo as one of the best in Europe. The animal collection is important.

This is well worth a visit a little confusing on the layout could do with a few refreshment stands along the way, but as we were there in December might be why there were not any

This is one of the beautiful places to visit in Stuttgart, variety of plants and trees and animals. Nice spots for photography. Make sure you have at least half day, when you are visiting this place. its quite big and takes time.

I've been to Wilhelma in 2012.I stayed for approximately 4h,but I haven't seen everything,so reserve yourself at least 6h. It is amazing,a big diversity of animals and birds,fish..I enjoyed a lot the polar bear,the pinguins,the giraffe. And the price is not so big.It's worth visiting!
