Nice building and zoo on sea

This is the only zoo which you find on the sea. Worth spending few hours or a whole day. If the weather is nice, the place offers quite a lot.

Lovely location, overlooking the sea. Wonderful for children because the enclosures are all glassed so that the animals, penguins, seals etc. can be seen up close and personal. Nice opportunity to see a polar bear. You have to follow a fairly narrow route, which can be irritating if very crowded. There is a lovely little play area for children which... More

Not the kind of big scale zoo where you get lions, giraffes, hippos, etc, but it was a lovely small zoo next to the sea. Loved watching feeding time for the otters. Lovely zoo, sensibly priced (21 Euro for a family ticket) and a great way to spend a couple of hours. Only drawback was the car parking- we went... More

Ever since I was a child this place was a must to see, back then it was the "Tiergrotten", and I loved the seals and its colleagues. Today the place ist the "Zoo am Meer" but it still emphazies on the animals of the Northern Hemisphere. You will find seals, sea lions, but also all those beasts living in the... More

Zoo is quite big and can't be made out from outside. But once you pass stages it's nicely arranged sections. Liked the polar bears lazing around and sea lions posing for great clicks and so much more. If you have time should not be given a miss.

Though it appears small from the outside, this place is packed with all sorts of animal varieties. Loved the sea life and includes land animals as well: foxes, leopards, owls, etc. Great for kids.

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
