This is a city zoo, with small enclosures for the animals, and too many food stalls. Although this is the zoo Bernhard Grzimek started off with, I wouldn't recommend visiting the zoo these days.

Personally, i do not like zoos particularly. However, this one is the largest zoo in our surroundings and my daughter ask us to visit it regularly. Having said that, the zoo is fine. Large, clean, with timetables to see animals being fed, good variety of animals, and little to no show. You also have quite many options for a snack... More

Don't know if I've lived under a bush, but this was the first Zoo I can remember seeing bears!!! Great zoo, really well laid out, a great day out, especially if the sun is shining. Would certainly recommend a visit, great range of animals

Loved the zoo..lived up to it's name..it was huge, impressive and vast selection of animals. You have to see it to believe, espec with it being in middle of a modern built up financial city. Not exactly a dislike but to appreciate it all and take it in it will take a full day (thereabouts) but worth it.

I guess it was our mistake going to the zoo on a sunny sunday afternoon. I mean, the animals were great and there were some that normally are only in national geographic documentaries. It was hard to navigate through flocks of children and their families. The noise youngsters made is enough to reccommend visiting it on a weekday😃. Nockturnal house... More

The Zoo was good, nice to walk about in the sunshine and check out the animals. Major downside was that all the information was in German, no English at all.

I expected to see more animals than I saw. I feel the zoo csn be expanded to contain more wild life. It's a zoo

Very beautiful scenery. My son loved it!! A lot of animals and much info in sppecially arranged rooms. There is also a nice playground! Dont miss feeding times of animals... The only thing that made us sad was that there were no elephants!!! The shop near the exit is nice too!

Zoo is small, many animals were absent, don't know where they were. Didn't have an elephant, which was big minus for me. I'd not go for such place again.
