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

The Wilhelma Zoo definitely has the feel of an old city zoo. Many of the facilities and exhibits are dated. There is a lot of space for the kids to run around. If you visit, do not miss the redwood trees growing in the back on a hill overlooking the zoo. A truly odd sight in Stuttgart. Parking is limited... More

Absolutely love this zoo! They have pretty much any animals you can think of and their new monkey house is great! The petting area is located in the farm area where you can pet goats, sheep, horses, bunnies! I used to come here a lot while stationed in Stuttgart and just revisited a couple of weeks ago! Still a great... More

Spent an entire afternoon with 3 younger children and they had a blast. Family ticket was affordable. I would recommend taking your stroller(s) with you for the visit.

There are so many useful comments under this attraction, I wouldn't bore you with mine, will just innumerate the highlight. Don't miss, 1. Recreated Amazon with Crocodile and snakes 2. Freely wondering peacock 3. Aquarium Take into consideration that the Zoo is huge and kids might become tired of walking, carrying a pushchair is well worth it.

Wilhelma is the only one Zoological & Botanical Garden in Germany. It is great for full day trip, in any season, with any occasion, for lovers, for families, etc. Nobody will be bored there.
