Zoo was great most animals were inside due to us going in Winter but there was plenty of viewing places to see the animals inside, got some good close ups with the monkeys. Was brilliant.

A really nice Zoo lots of animals to see and in most cases you could get quite close to them, e did feel some enclosures were small but accepted that it was winter and cold therefore the animals were spending a lot of time inside

It´s a decent zoo and especially kids will love it. But there are nicer zoos in Germany (e.g. Wilhelma in Stuttgart), since some of the compounds seem to need renovation. And there are no elephants..

I guess I was lucky; got a close up look of most of the animals and the weather was perfect! And for only 10 ? it was a "preisgunstig" pastime as well. Will certainly take visitors as well.

Animals seemed more crowded and didn't have as much space. People not as friendly in restaurants. Sad to see it is not being kept up.

For a measly 10 euros, I walked and gazed for hours at the animals. I was a lone tourist from the United States, and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. Inexpensive, entertaining, and naturally shopped... More

Frankfurt Zoo is great and worth a visit for both kids and adults! Beside the usual animals it also giraffes and elephants, has a nice architecture and is literally downtown of the city, easy to reach by public transport.

The family and I have a yearly pas, mostly because it is cheap and the kids are young enough to still be excited by any animals they see. If you however, you are visting for the first time then it is a nice day out, particularly on a Sunday when the shops are closed. It is nothing more than "nice"... More
