I was here in January in the middle of winter and spent 3-4 hours wandering around one morning. I was travelling alone and caught the U Bahn 14 from the Hauptbahnhof in about 10 mins, easy. The place has such a historical feel to it; a cross between a zoological and botanical garden. The gardens and ponds are so beautifully... More

Been to lots of zoos over the years, and this is a nice zoo. Well set out in really nice grounds and gardens. Allow yourself at least 5 hours to fully appreciate.

A lot to see! Several places to have a picnic so definitely bring some food to enjoy! We visited on a hot day so the felines were sleeping in the shadows/inside, so they were unfortunately not visible but in general time well spent!

Very interesting, even with butterflies, but many steps and long way to go. Good location. Nice to have a long walk among ponds.

If you visit Stuttgart in early autumn (September-October) you should visit this garden. The zoo don't impress me much, but garden was beautiful addition. Its better to go there with friends or family to relax.

This is a garden that was build by King Wilhelm as a copy of an english royal garden. Since then they have collected hundreds of plants and animals and made it a unique beutiful place to go especially during summertime. It is good for family singles and couples as everyone will find a corner to enjoy.

A large zoo with many of the animals and creatures that you would see in a large zoo back in the USA. The botanical gardens are very nice and if your into plants and flowers, its a must see in Stuttgart. Within the city center of Stuttgart with parking and public trans access.
