Wanting to get away from the scads of cathedrals and museums we'd been visiting throughout Germany and Prague, Vienna, and Amsterdam--and since the weather finally got sunny--we decided to visit the Frankfurt Zoo. Although the layout was a bit confusing (once inside we couldn't find a flyer with a map), we enjoyed strolling through the pathways and buildings. As is... More

Yes, it is a small zoo. But they have great attractions and it really is in the middle of the city, which can be a little confronting when you realize these animals also live in the city with you. Great for a day trip with the kids, especially in the sun.

If u are a person who likes nature u will luv the Frankfurt zoo. There are a lot of lovely animals to see u must see the seal show it is very funny, and to see the elefants up close is really a experience. There is plenty to see and a lot of walking but it is worth every bit... More

This one is not a big Zoo but its worth the time and the money. Only 10 euro the entrance. Avoid the weekend if you do not like a lot of company. I like it, well organized and a lor of different atractions. I recommand it.

Went there on a friday morning. The queue was moving very fast. The staff was very helpful. Once inside iit was wonderful. The bears and the monkeys were especially funny. We didn't get the chance to see the tigers though. The night-animal exhibit was really interesting.

It is a very nice zoo but in reality also much smaller than I had expected. On the plus side it is a great place for younger kids as it is possible to get close to the animals and also cover the entire zoo in 2-3 hrs. And there is also a nice playground in the middle of the zoo... More

I felt like a child visiting this beautiful ZOO! Plenty of animals and very well equipped. "Nocturnal Animals" is a area not to be missed

While most people will want to go visit the historical sights and get a chance to drink a good German Beer and eat a real Bratwurst, take a moment to go to the Zoo. It is well laid out, kind of busy, but has a great variety of animals to watch and is extremely well kept. My family loved it... More

Have a few hours to spare? Check out the Frankfurt Zoo. Nice to walk around, the anilmals have room to run around for the most part and a nice way to spend the day
