Plenty of wildlife to view and a nice petting zoo. Good representation of apes. Animals seemed well looked after and content apart from a pacing lion.

From airport take train to zoo only about 20mins. very easy to spot . it looks OK to animal lover to spend few hours to visit but the design for animal watching is not good. the animals are not happy in small area. The good thing is clean and location easy access only

Good range of animals, layout and map-including some unusual exhibits such as baboons. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, despite the rain! Noticed lots of activities for children.

We have been to the zoo in Frankfurt and it wasn't special as i expected. It only has some animals not too many!! But at the end it is a nice place.

This is a very relaxing zoo with a the added bonus of being close to the centre of Frankfurt. It is one of the oldest zoos in Germany, but the grounds are very parklike. We found a Mexican beer garden for a cold pils with views of the Baboon enclosure, past the cacti. Can highly recommend this zoo with a... More

My Granddaughter is thrilled with the Frankfurter Zoo. She loves to see the goats and other animals, even if she is a bit shy. Sometimes we have to help her feed carrots, but soon, this will become one of her favorite activities. Exposure is everything! You can combine your visit at the Zoo with a little picnic. My granddaughter likes... More

I am glad we live with in walking distance of the frankfurt zoo, it's a pleasure to visit on the weekends with our daughter. For a small city to have such a big zoo with just about all the animals Noah had on his ark is just amazing. Plenty to do for the kids and see too and you are... More

I visited the zoo in July 2014 with my son 11, and we had a blast, you can pick your preferred things you want to see, as they have an " monkey house" and "aquarium building" a forest, birds area. It's organized, so you can follow your interest first to the least. It's very clean, you can get snacks and... More

I visited Amsterdam Zoo earlier in my trip and was very unimpressed at the condition of the place. This was much nicer and animals had a lot more room (would always be good to have more). They were currently building some new enclosures so certain sections were blocked. You can tell the way a zoo is handled by certain aspects,... More
