Huge complex of buildings makes this one of the most enjoyable museums you will ever visit. Plan to spend a great portion of the day there since there are so many exhibits and rooms to see.

We visited as a break from typically tourist activities. What a great zoo! There are a wide range of animals which are clearly well taken care of. The enclosures are large and interesting for the animals. Easily accessed on the underground - getting there is a breeze!

Really fun and such a brilliant way to end an awesome trip to Munich. It wasn't originally planned but our teachers thought 'why not?' so we did.

quite big, clean and with a big range of animals. my favorite parts are the area with monkeys, polar bears and the"animal playground"where de kids can play and touch goats and other domestic animals.

At first glance I wasn't too impressed as the first 3 cages were a bust...no animals to see, but then things started to pick up.....I love the concept of this zoo. The lion and tiger cages have moats around them with a small concrete wall, this allows visitors to see the animals without fences or glass walls obstructing the view.... More

nice park style zoo, animals seem to have good conditions. worth visiting with children or if you like being chased by mini goats in the petting zoo place - they love their snacks and learned long ago that it comes from the machine in the middle of the petting zoo place.

We bought the family annual pass since we live closeby and want to get the most out of it. My young kids love going to the zoo. They have a cute petting zoo with goats. You can feed them, pet them, take pictures. It definitely is a cute place to start out the day. The animals are kept in their... More

The territory is quite large, and it was interesting even in spite of the cold weather (early March). Giraffes and elephants are love.

A little more English would help but then it is in Germany One of the better Zoos, I have visited and I have been to a lot all over the world. Easy to get to by public transport.... More

We've been to the Tierpark many times but the "meet your favourite animal" experience was something out of this world. You have to call up the administration well in advance to book a private visit. We decided to visit the animals of the polar world and were not disappointed. We met with our personal zoo keeper Frank and followed him... More

Ok, let me start by saying that it is not the biggest and most modern zoo you will ever visit. BUT it has everything you need/want in a zoo! Lots of exotic animals, the "standard" zoo animals (Lions, Polar bears, Giraffes, etc...) and a really nice Aquarium! What made me give this zoo a 5* rating, however, are the extremely... More
