Plenty of safe parking(paid). Very beautiful landscape and atmosphere. 5yr loved it. Monkeys were the best. Amazed at how close the animals were.

Every time I used to drive from the wife's old's place in Esslingen to Stuttgart I would pass under this rail bridge that had a picture of a bunch of elephants next to the word: "Wilhelma". For about three years I thought Wilhelma was German for Family of Elephants. But it ain't. The German word for Elephant is 'Elefant'. Wilhelma... More

Really nice zoo with so much to see in one day. I went there twice and enjoyed it each time I went. Great for all ages but hard for the eldest to walk through it. They have a nice restaurant near to the main entrance just after the kangaroo. I recommend it as a Marin attraction that you should not... More

close to city centre and you will need to spend quite a few hours here in order to enjoy all it has to offer. The park is quite large so wear comfortable shoes.

The botanical garden was exceptional, well laid out and very clean, plants were fantastic especially in the greenhouses. The zoo part was as to be expected and the animals looked well cared for. Good value.

My daughter loved the bat exhibit. Even the teens enjoyed it. If you are looking for a kid activity during your trip try this.

Huge compound and enlosures for roaming animals, although appears old (the zoo has a very long history). Ample children's activities, including a large playgound and a children's zoo where they can interact with baby lambs and goats. Ample parking although have to walk a distance as nearby parking gets filled up fast.

You should not miss the opportunity to walk among the butterflies, to see monkey kindergarten or to feed the giraffe. I also like the way in which birds are kept, under huge nets under which they're almost free. Ape houses are also great. This is a place that both kids and adults would enjoy.

An absolute must see for anyone living or visiting Stuttgart! The entire facility is easily accessible from many different transportation means (bus, car or subway/train - highly recommend the train - it stops right at the entrance!) Entrance fees can be reduced by 1 Euro per person if you travel to the zoo with a subway/train "Tages" (day) ticket, along... More

I've heard many great things about the Wilhelma Zoo. But after visiting I was very disappointed! Yes the grounds are beautiful and well maintained, but the animal enclosures need improvement. Too many cage-like enclosures. Lots of concrete. The indoor exhibits are very out dated. The park seems to cater more to the visitors and their comfort than to the living... More
