Visited in June, was not crowded. Huge and very natural looking. Zambesi part was my favorite with the boat ride around. (Queues might be long in peak season.) Lots of exotic trees/bushes/flowers. Also the polar bear/seal/pinguin area was very natural. Feedings/shows are several times a day, worth to check the timetables. Cute restaurants, fantastic ice creams! Several play area, petting...

The Hannover Zoo is a great place to visit when in Hannover with children but not only. Great attractions nice arrangements, all in all a fun day out for the kids and adults alike. The boat ride is very nice and the fact that you can at times get really close to the animals, only adds to a great experience.

Hannover Zoo is a fantastic day-trip for the whole family. The zoo itself is dedicated to keeping their animals happy and stimulated, and their main aim is to educate their visitors about the animals that they house. Each exhibit is expertly suited to the animal it contains, and the animals seem content and relaxed. There are also themed areas -... More

One of the best zoos that I have visited. The boat ride was very relaxing. Good choice on a sunny day and reasonably priced.

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
