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

Also adults can have a lot of fun in this small but very attractive zoo. The compounds are big, not too many animals in a compound, the variety of animals is big, too. Very interesting is the house with night active animals.

What a lovely zoo, very beautifully laid out and they had many different species. The food left something to be desired, but I think that's any zoo. The Baboon exhibit was especially epic

NIce zoo for the whole family. Easy access by subway (station directly under the zoo). New bear area is very well made, and in general the animals have good enclosures in fairly natural settings.

good habitats for the animals (mostly), some very interesting species, good information provided to each species, especially interesting is the day-night house which allows visitors to observe nocturnal animals in an artificial night environment, also very nice was the primate enclosure. Fairly limited food outlets, but adequate.

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
