Zoos are often a quite far from the city Centrum but not at this time. Nice little walk and there it was. Animals were healthy looking and their cages were clean and surprisingly big ones. Bring your kids here!

This is a large enough zoo, where you can see animals that feel at home. They have all conditions for this. But if you want to come by car, you need to search for a free parking place. The zoo has got medium size. It isworthy of it, and you can make good photos.

Many animals are visible, some of them are sad, but in the jungle there are also many crazy cowboys that look for hunting....

Our first trip to this zoo with our 4 children (aged 9-20). We spent a good 4 hours here and they all loved it. Not an enormous zoo but big enough and a fantastic range of animals ( hippos, rhinos, bears, giraffes etc). THe nocturnal animal house was amazing - saw lots of animals that I'd never seen before (eg... More

There was a variety of animals, but some areas with without any animals. Many places to roam around. There was not any interactive exhibition when we were there. Not really interesting for teenagers.

We went on the off chance as it was open on New Years Day. Very reasonable entry price, and lots to see, though we went in the afternoon and as it closed at 5pm in the winter it was getting dark and some of the animals were put to bed/ stabled. Not too matter, we were pleasantly surprised that it... More

As one of the few attractions open in Frankfurt on New Years Day, my partner and I decided to spend the afternoon wandering around the zoo. As it is located in the city centre, it is fairly small but easily accessible. The number of animals and the variety at the zoo is excellent, albeit quite cramped and some dubiously-sized enclosures.... More

There was an excellent range of animals to see at the zoo and it was a lovely day out. However, the size of the enclosures made me uncomfortable. The animals did not have enough room. Also, alot of the enclosures, penguin in particular, needs renovating. Excellent value - we spent 3 and a half hours here and could easily have... More
