A MUST when visiting Stuttgart or southern Germany! From the giant Orangutan, Mountain Guerrillas, and other primates to the aquatic Seals, Sea Lions, Sharks and general Aquarium, to the plains game, reptiles, and arachnid exhibits...you need ALL DAY to explore the meticulously kept grounds and botanical gardens. BRING WATER as it is hard to come by, and I suggest climbing... More

This is a lovely place! So peaceful and easy to wander between plants, animals and the aquarium. Because of the way the zoo and greenhouses are laid out it is a great visit even on a cold rainy day. Flowers, flowers, could not stop taking pictures of these well maintained beauties! The animals seem well cared for and are in... More

This is one place you must visit while being in Stuttgart. Situated in a large area close the the Neckar River, you´ll find great botanical and zoological diversity here! The aquarium is spectacular, such are the old buildings that are from the late 19 hundreds. A beautiful place just to stroll around while checking out many animals.

Get up close and personal. The animals and other exhibits are much more accessible than USA zoos. I always get worn out before I see averything. I have been there several times. Love it in Spring and Fall.

I visited here with my sister. We also booked us an animal visit with the two hippos Rosie and Mike. What a great experience and the fee was very agreeable since the day pass of the zoo and botanical garden is included with the animal visit. The Caretaker took the time to explain us facts about the animals.we also could... More

Went here on the 13th of February on our second day in Stuttgart. This is absolutely amazing and well worth the visit. Although still in transition from winter to spring it was still beautiful to see. Just big enough to be easy to walk round and plenty for everyone to see. Every aspect of it is well laid out and...

Located in the city, driving and finding parking is a pain but it's worth the zoo. From the botanical gardens, to the reptile house and aquariums; it's all great. The primate house is also very interesting but I do feel very sympathetic towards the animals. I know that they will never experience the feel of their natural habitat but a... More
