Ok didn't go in. Should have checked prices before travelling there. 25 Euros per adult means that this zoo is for adults with lots of spare money. Not me then!

Whoever designed this zoo deserves a medal - it's absolutely amazing. Rather than having the 'typical' zoo feel with a lot of enclosures in metal / concrete, there are different zones in the zoo and each zone has been designed amazingly well so that you really feel you are in Africa / underwater etc. It's an amazing place where a...

Turning mid winter, on a shower ridden afternoon we were worried, but should not have been as town zoos go this is by far the nicest I have been to. Split into zones there was plenty to keep us occupied for 4hrs. The animals look well looked after, the surrounding are amazing especially the Yukon area where the polar bears... More

The Polar Bears are great and the fact that they allow dog into the zoo makes it interesting as the big cats want to eat them. The elephants were great, attempting to move a massive balls over a log. It showed how clever they were and how persistent, not that the poor elephant managed it, but he didn't give up... More

On a weekend visit to Hannover decided on a trip to the zoo. I was expecting a small concrete place as you find with a lot of small urban zoos. I could not have been more wrong!!!! It was amazing. Although small, it takes less than an hour to walk round the whole place, the animals looked happy and well... More

When travelling to visit my military boyfriend in Hannover, we had nothing to do one Sunday and as most things are closed, we decided to take a trip to the zoo. I wasn't expecting a lot. Usually inner city zoos lack charm and personality but this was something else! We went through a lot of different areas (the zoo is... More

Went to the zoo on a cold November day. Was pretty kicked to catch a lot of animals up close, due to the Plexiglas viewing windows. However the polar bears were not there :( Big bummer! In-fact the whole arctic section was closed off. I as an Indian, loved the huge section dedicated to India which has the many many... More
