The territory of the zoo is not that big, but the number of different species is really huge. We spent the whole day there and I'm not sure we had a look at everything. Some plants and animals are pretty "normal", but there is also a lot of very unusual and amazing creatures! Closer to the midle of the day... More

This zoo is fabulous! If you are a 'local' family, go ahead and purchase the year's card. There are a wide variety of animals, gardens and playgrounds. We often go in the fall and winter when the zoo is less crowded, and the animals are more active. It is an oasis in the city.

This really is a fantastic zoo and I am struggling to recall if there were any animals I did not see! Very well set out, with lovely indoor botanical gardens that are a dream to stroll through. As it is Spring, all the flowers were in full bloom, making for dazzling arrays of colour. Animals all looked healthy and well... More

There is always something different. Plants bloom at different times of the year; animals do the funniest things which one may not catch the first time around. There are plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces which make Wilhelma appropriate for all seasons and all weather. The fee (16 euros) is rather steep, so make sure you have enough time to... More

...but we enjoyed lot the tulip flowerbeds, park itself. Just great to visit in spring. Note the place doesn't have the places to eat we got used in any zoo. Only cold drinks and ice-cream.

When the weather was still so cold and everything gloomy and grey, it was wonderful to go into the greenhouses to see the bright blooms! I was so happy to see color before spring. I was there for the monkey feeding time which was delightful to watch and I LOVED the aquarium. I think it will be wonderful to revisit... More

The garden is well looked after and the variety of the plants on display is high. The whole setting with the old buildings and ponds is excellent. I am no botanist, but the different exotic trees, flowers and bushes are very interesting. The zoo that is in the park is not the biggest one, but the animal pens are nicely... More
