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

It is a nice zoo not far from the center of munich. The only advise i would give it to look in advance at the summer / winter schedule as some animals are not staying there during winter starting November

It is very well organised, clean and maintained zoo. It is somehow smaller in size when compared to Nurenburg zoo still a nice way to spend some time with animals.

Quite friendly environment for animals, multiple play areas for kids, elephants enclosure still under construction. However, many parts& facilities closed during winter times (much more than in Vienna or in Amsterdam), excellent visiting time starting Spring

I love zoos therefore this place was already on my list to visit while in Munich. It turned out to be a huge disappointment due to entry fees policy. Few tips for those who want to visit: 1.U3 line will take quite fast and easy from city centre 2.Short walk and you'll find yourself in beautiful peaceful surroundings 3.TAKE CASH... More

The Zoo was huge a was filled with every type of animal we were highly impressed by the vast variety of animals and the beautiful scenery around. If you have a family or you are out with friends I recommend this Zoo for a wild day... More

At 89 acres this zoo is plenty big - modern and well-kept. It had been snowing for four days when we visited and we had a very enjoyable time even though some of the exhibits were closed because of the snow. The gorillas were implacable. Only one young one. There were plenty of antelope but the giraffe were in hiding.... More

I've been to quite a lot of zoos around the world and this one rates with some of the best! We went on the 8th of January - it was cold and quite snowy which made it very picturesque! Vast amount of animals, and we were under time constraints to catch a flight so didn't even quite manage round the... More
