Zoo am Meer is a very quaint and enjoyable little zoo. For it's small size it is well designed with many good animals to check out as you enjoy a walk around the grounds with excellent vantage points to the animals. The only downside to this zoo is it's small size, but still worth the visit. If you're in the... More

The zoo is ideally located just at the sea, which sets a pretty unique feeling while visiting. We were a little disapointed by the polar bear, which honestly looked in a very poor condition, and that was a little sad. But the seals and sea lions are just the most fun I ever had in the zoo, and the viewing... More

This zoo tries it s very best to give the animals a pleasant ambiance close to the seaside. and that s the main attraction: this unique atmosphere of seeing polar bears in a bigger enclosure so close to the seaside

We did not have a lot of time in Bremerhaven and decided to visit this zoo. The polar bears are a "must see" as are the snow fox and Jack rabbits. This is not a large zoo and does not require much time. It is a good value as well. Six of us was 21 Euro.

It is a small zoo, but a very nice place to walk around and sit on the sun. Located by the sea. Its main attraction is 5 months old female polar bear cub named Lale.

Located immediately next to the Weser with stunning views in all directions, Zoo am Meer is a quintessential part of the Bremerhaven experience. We went on Easter Monday - a busy time but everything is so well laid out, it was still possible to walk round and see each section without having to queue. This is very much a family... More
