We truly loved this zoo. It's quiet big, lots of different well known animals like lions, polar bears, giraffes, bisons, wolves buy also smaller animals like snakes and wombats. Highlight for us were the polar bears and the lions, lots of new borns as well!

Best Zoo visited ever. We do not have kids but for us it was a complete surprise and an outstanding experience. For the first time I did not feel sorry for the animals, instead you are happy to know how much love and care is given to all of them by trying to have the most healthy and accurate environmet...

I visited with a party of school children & we were all very impressed. It has been designed exceptionally well. Thr facilities, even in February, were very good. The highlight was watching the polar bear dive into the water & swim - just incredible .

We believe to know a fair bit about animal care and health. We also have 2 young animal loving children of 5 and 6 years. This is in both respects the best Zoo / animal park we have visited. It is fun for the kids, for more than one day. The animals are kept extremely well and are well looked... More

I visited in winter which is challenging. But most of the amimals were out and about. The path layout makes sure you see everything. Summer would be the best time but it was a good use of an hour or two on a winters day. Easy to get there as the train stops right next to it. Cool to see... More

Visited with family in Dec 14. Fantastic experience. Elephant area and Yukon were highlights. Winter area was fantastic too (markets, ice skating, sledding etc.). would definitely recommend to families with young kids.

yes, I know, that is quite a statement. And I am a regular visitor of Zoo's around the world. But when the world exhibition came to Hannover, they really remade this Zoo completely and it is great. They created artifical landscapes for the animals to live in. You have parts of Africa, complete with a boat ride, artificial rocks and... More

I think this was one of the best ways to spend a day at Hannover! In the heart of the city (train 10) if I'm not wrong takes you to the Zoo! The animals have been kept well, fed on time, and they allow pets to visit as well!! Very clean and tidy, the maps guide you well inside the... More
