If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, spend a few hours at the zoo. It is so relaxing to see and hear the animals and leisurely walk from one animal exhibit to the next. We did not eat at the restaurant there but only had ice cream on that hot day. We didn't have time... More

I went here on New Years Eve as My options were limited and I am a big fan of Reptiles. So the Zoo was a good choice. It was pretty good, covered a lot of different types of animals and Environments. It was a descent sized zoo, with signage in multiple languages. So it was easy to navigate. My personal... More

We had a few hours to kill on a recent weekend visit to Frankfurt, so decided to visit the zoo. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience. Pretty much all of the animals we wanted to see were there, lions, tigers, giraffes, rhinos, zebras and gorillas. The reptile house and nocturnal house were great also, with a large variety of...

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.

I would say that visit to Zoo is not must but good to have. Every Zoo has it own positives and negatives. However they have enough variety of Animals and moreover the Zoo is maintained very well and clean. Its can be reached by using the UBAN line U6 and there is station on this line named ZOO once you... More

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.
