It is a wonderful zoo, the settings are marvellous even when not without mistake as the Siberian Tiger in the Indian setting or very short descriptions on the animals. In that, there are much better Zoos around. What, however is really impressive is the larger settings like the Yukon bay stadium or Meyer's farm. You can roam and wander in... More

I travelled quite a distance to visit this zoo as I had heard it was supposed to show animals in their natural habits... If that's what you can call small areas just painted to look real. The fact that this zoo prides itself on giving the animals natural surroundings made it so much shocking when I saw a baby elephant... More

I came with my girldfriend, because we read that it was a very nice zoo, and we hadn't been to one for a long time. The entry was 25€ for adults, and in my opinion, it is expensive; otherwise the zoo is very clean and with a great variety of animals from different continents. You can find a polar bear... More

We had looked at what to do whilst in Hannover and came across the zoo. Thought haven't been to a zoo for years so why not. We were not disappointed. The queue to get in wasn't too bad as it was still holiday time. We were given a guide in English which was good and vey helpful! The zoo itself... More

Don't be put off by the ticked price of €25. It's worth twice that. Their is something for everyone. The... More

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 .
