We were sceptical and needed ti fill a feww hours so off to the zoo. Surprise, surprise! frankfurts zoo might be old but the exhibits are great, Whilst some need an upgrade overall this zoo compares with the Melbourne (Australia) zoo.

In the middle of the big city you can feel like on safari. This is Zoo in Frankfurt. Big area, many animals. Good exhibitions. Fun for small and bigger kids. There is a good restaurant there too.

Excellent zoo! Very well maintained and organised. Not a very big one but nice. Lots of different animals, lots of sitting areas, interesting and worthy a visit if you're in Frankfurt with kids or if you want to relive your childhood.

Visited with a very young child who loved every minute. Even though it was raining the zoo has enough variety to be in and out of the rain and to see exciting things. Probably not worth more than two hours for a visit but easy to get to with U Bahn and tram right outside. Would not suggest this for... More

It is not a huge zoo, but still a nice place to visit. Very clean and well organized, enough animals to keep you distract and make you enjoy the visit.

If you have kids, then go. If you don't and you are a solo traveller you will be bored the moment you get inside. It's very clean place but not the best place for adults.

Nice half-day trip at this zoo, not the best in the world but interesting and nice for kids. Not very expensive (9eur adult, 4,5eur kids, free below 6 years old). Lots of different areas, lots of sitting here-and-there for quick picnic and snacks, interesting and worthy a visit if you're in Frankfurt with kids.

A Perfect way to relive your childhood is by visiting a zoo..I'm sure the kids will love it. Nice clean built animal park covering a good large area with definitely a good number of common and uncommon animals.You can as well find detailed information of them outside their abode. Best time to visit is between 12 in the afternoon to... More

Our kids had an amazing time, we rented a Bollerwagen to enable them to walk or ride in the Bollerwagen as they pleased. Saw all animals we didn't know. Good ice cream.

The Zoo is that amazing and it's not terrible. Don't expect to get blown away by it. We did have a good time either way.
