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.

Getting to this place by car is a horrible nightmare: it is hard to find even with a navigator, and their zoo signs are very small and badly placed; you see them generally when you have passed by the turns. Parking was a nightmare for a tourist attraction: there were two small gravel fields for parking, which were both full... More

If you have time while you are in Munich, I cannot recommend spending the day at Tierpark Hellabrunn enough!! They have so many animals, with a brilliant enclosure system which means there are no high fences that children can't see over. The enclosures allow full viewing access to all the animals on display. The goat petting zoo was a particular... More

I spent there the whole day, 10am-6pm kids were just happy and viewed almost everything. one tip, if you have a small child or lots of bags, rent a cart for 5euros at the entrance as you get inside.

It's a nice place to visit, near to Isar river, once you finish the visit in the Zoo, you can sit near to Isar river. You have to walk a lot in the Zoo, since it's very big in size/area. For small children you can bring walkers/push car or whatever you are comfortable with. You can bring your own camera,... More

Nice zoo with plenty to see. We only spent 2 hrs here before it closed, but could have easily spent the day. Our boys enjoyed searching for some of the animals that were hiding and they really loved playing at the park. We had the opportunity to see the sea lions eat up close, which was fun to watch. For...

As many said before me you can spend a hole day here with your kids if they want to play there are several places you can have a brake and they can fool around. Unfortunately now a days there is no more food you can buy an give to the animals as before. Hope they put the dispensers up again... More

From the Marienplatz, head underground & take the U-3 toward Furstenried West for 7 stops and get off Thalkirchen station. Follow the crowds up the ramp out of station, cross over the Isar river, and you're there. The habitats for the larger mammals are large in a natural setting, some of which uses the Isar tributaries to form river locked... More

I came here on my last day while visiting Munich since it was right near my hostel. I went expecting to kill maybe 2 hours and ended up spending 3.5+ hours. The exhibits are nice and sprawling with plenty to see. Animals seemed happy even though it was an extremely hot day. Cafes are everywhere so no shortage of places... More

Tierpark is a very nice zoo. Most of the animals are in their natural environment. Children loved it. You can find jungle animals, a great aquarium, monkey world and many more. Don't miss the bird show! The elephant show was very interesting too. The price was OK. 30 euro per family of four. And the prices of food and drinks... More

We visited on 5 July when the temperatures were in the mid 30s. Really easy to get to from Thalkirchen S-Bahn station. Entry cost €14 which was really reasonable. The zoo was well laid out and because of the design, the enclosures seemed pretty close, giving you a good view of the animals. Some of the enclosures are a bit... More
