A city zoo in a former royal palace. It is a zoo in a park with enough to keep the whole family entertained.There are formal gardens, a hot house as well as a huge variety of animals. There's also at least one beer Garden too (this is Germany after all). Great value (take your student id if you are one).... More

Wilhelma has the reputation of being one of the best Zoo in the world - deservedly! Everything is meticulously well maintained, well organised and super nice. On a nice sunny day, this is one of the best options for a day with kids in Stuttgart!

Loved it! My 6 year old asks to go back. There are hills! We only spent 3 hours here and didnt get to spend a lot of time at any one spot. Will definitely go back so we can watch some of the feedings.

The restaurant food we ate in was... More

We bought the yearly membership which allows us to go back as often as we want too and it's worth going to the Zoo! Over the years we have gone many times with the kids and ourselves, never am I disappointed or think I missed something.

I'm kicking myself now for not having gone here sooner. Don't let the ugly construction around Wilhelma fool you. The zoo is absolutely stunning and houses an amazing array of animals. The gardens themselves are worth it, but you add the wonderful creatures and you've got the makings for a wonderful day. I especially enjoyed the feedings, the penguins and... More

Whilst there are many animals on view the conditions under which they are kept is appalling. Coming from a country where we have Safari parks, to see animals in cages and small enclosures in a country many times the size of the UK is disgusting,. Yes the flowers and Fauna are attractive but the tiger is slowly going mad. I... More

The zoo is very large plan for more than one day. If you live in the Stuttgart area I recommend buying a family pass especially if you have more than two kids.
