This is a lovely park--it's a beautiful botanical gardens with a wide variety of plants. It's got a redwood section that is so gorgeous and lovely for a picnic and hanging around in the shade during the summer days. The animal exhibits are also very nice--but definitely my kids LOVE the animal appropriate playgrounds) like the one near the monkeys... More

Real glad we decided to visit Wilhelma Zoo in winter. We were a little hesitant as it was winter, but the place turned out amazing. The variety of animals are good and the botanical glass house is charming - better than expectations. Definitely will visit again in summer!

I've visted Wilhelma in all seasons, and it suits every single one perfectly. The animals are all very well looked after and their enclosures are a good size. The pathways are clear and the new Monkey enclosure is absolutely brilliant, even with a small area for the baby/child monkies! It is easy to spend a whole day in the zoo... More

I decided to visit the Zoo on the basis of reviews and notes that it is one of the biggest in Europe. It was vey easy to reach, via U14 you just come in front of it. The place is really big and it has many many animals. It has a route also for children, where the children may obtain... More

One of the best Zoos I've been so far. It's also a botanical garden so that there are a lot of beautiful plants and flowers. Do the primate tour!

Actual visits: Feb. and Oct. of 2012 and once in 2013...and will be visiting again Extremely large but nice zoo. The layout is a little weird and we turned back at one point when we thought we'd reached the end. You could spend an entire day in this park and still miss something. Bring the kids and have a picnic... More

On top of the monstrous heat, this zoo proved to be a major disappointment. It was not easy for us to navigate to the animals section located at the top of the hill. Upon arriving there, we were disappointed in the lack of numbers and variety of animals. Most of the enclosures were too cramped for the animals being housed... More

The zoo is set out nicely and houses a lot of animals, birds, insects, reptiles, fish, farm animals (you can pet the ittle sheep and goats) as well as displaying beautiful trees, plants and flowers. A couple of the animal enclosures seem too small, but that's the same in most zoos unfortunately. As well as daily feeding times, the zoo... More
