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.

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

We had a lovely day at the zoo. The sun was shining and it was a really pleasant place to spend the day. There was plenty to see and do and all of the animals seemed very comfortable. Definitely worth a visit and I will certainly return.

We do love a zoo my partner and I so while in Frankfurt we thought why not. On Sunday 20th July we bought a ticket for a city bus tour around Frankfurt and enjoyed the scenery. The tour lasts around 1hr but you hop on and hop off whenever you want . So we hopped off @ the zoo. Fantastic... More
