This zoo/botanical garden is incredible! If you're in Stuttgart, make sure not to miss it. The co-existence of both concepts in a single space is well achieved, and provides you a (at least) 3 hour journey of wonders! My minor point goes to the fact that even thought the park is open until 18h30, all animals are kept inside way... More

The zoo was very attractive and the botanical gardens were nice to look out despite it being November. There were a large amount of animals and it was a very reasonably priced afternoon out.

This is a very nice zoo but I think it is the botanical garden that makes it so special. Even during a late winter visit there is so much too see, and at this time of year, there aren't any crowds. The animals seemed happier than those at some zoos I've visited. By far my favorite part though was the... More

This is a great day out for all types of travellers. So many animals and such beautiful gardens, it's definitely worth a visit! If you're just with adults, I'd allow at least 3 hours to see it all comfortably (with kids probably longer- there's so much stuff for them to do!). There's a petting zoo, a butterfly house, an aquarium,... More

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.
