Very easy to reach by train(S-bahn). Very nice botanical garden with different greenhouses and climates. The zoo is very big with a lot of different animals. If you go there on winter season, you could miss some of them due to the cold and bad weather. We would suggest to start early in the morning because it closes at 5PM... More

I go to this zoo once or twice a year. My favorite is the butterfly room in spring - amazing for both kids and grownups alike! It's a great place for kids, with a petting zoo off to the side, and the new building for the apes and bonobos is beautiful, where you can often see the trainers working with... More

To us one of the most attractive and best kept secrets. It is historically old and very interesting. Fun to watch all the animals and the botanical gardens worth going through in a city bustle that is otherwise noisy.

The roads outside may be utterly chaotic thanks to construction work on a new tunnel, but Wilhelma is definitely worth a visit. A huge range of animals, from gorillas, to elephants, meerkats and polar bears certainly kept our two young children entertained for hours. The botanical gardens element, with classic glasshouses containing cactae, colourful fuschias and tropical plants is also... More

A very nice place to relax and walk around while staying in the city. Garden is nice to just walk thru and sit in. Worth the time to go and visit if you are in the Stuttgart area.

A wonderful garden, old trees, beautiful flowers! Definitely should go to the "Seerosenteich", "Amazonashaus" and the "Schmetterlingshaus". So romantic!!!

This is not your typical Zoo and has a beautiful botanical garden. The kids love it and has a lot for kids to do as well. It is big and it will take a while to see everything. But is is worthwhile. It also has nice restaurants and even picnic places to eat and enjoy your self. I would say... More

You take a U-Bahn to Wilhelma station. It is a very large zoo and botanical garden. The Greenhouse is amazing with many different plants and flowers. There are also many animals in the zoo. I have never had a chance to encounter the animals so close before. There are peacocks walking around inside the garden. We only spend a half... More
