We have visited lots of zoos in Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany. Any time of the year. But this one seemed having very little to see compared to others. Many animals were taken away for winter time. On the good side the animals are kept in very nice and natural environment. Should be much better experience in warmer months.

The Nuremberg Zoo is a fun-filled and educational experience for the kids, and it's leafy park-like layout gives it a relaxing atmosphere for parents to enjoy as well. The dolphin display is a treat, but get there well before the show starts, as good seating is in short supply and the shows get quite packed in summer. The enclosures are... More

An excellent little zoo with nice collection of various animals. Lions and seals are special attractions. Quiet little walkways through the zoo to explore. Tram service from the downtown directly takes you to the zoo.

One of the greatest Zoos in Central Europe. Its Delfinarium, size, overall spirit and number of animal make one of our favorite destinations with our kids. If only the food service would be better. There is basically only one restaurant open during winter with pretty limited variety of food.

A wonderful zoo, some animals have lots of room, others not so much. The dolphins show was great, and there is a viewing room "underground" so you can see the dolphins and the sea-lions swim. Too bad that the only thing they offer for children is a big wooden cart that you have to push around or pull behind you.... More

My wife and I had a great time at the zoo today. It's a beautiful zoo with nice trails through the forrest between some of the exhibits. There are benches abs picnic tables throughout the park to rest if needed. Our favorite exhibit was the dolphins. The seating area to watch the dolphin show is much closer than anything at... More

I hardly ever come here. Only if I get forced from my school etc. I always feel sorry for some of the animals. A lot of the cages are quite good sized, but others seem way too small like the dolphins , the crocodiles , the sea cows.. Please change that and let the dolphins back in the ocean!

This zoo is by far the largest zoo that I have been to. It may not have as many animals as some but the animals have large places to stay and places to stay inside once it gets cold. I love that. Prepare for a lot of walking.

Zoos tend to be more of the same, so here's what set the Nuremberg Zoo apart: - an awesome playground! - some animals (really cool ones) that I'd never seen in a zoo before, or even heard of - a dolphin show - huge pretzels for sale at the entrance - more walking than I recall doing at other zoos...

This is a must do when visiting Nuremburg. The zoo is situated in a nice quiet forest setting, with lots of trails. It is easy to reach via the tram.
