The Berlin Zoo may be more famous, but it the Hannover Zoo is far superior. (Berlin Zoo looks like it hasn't changed in 60 years, with the traditional feeling of animals being imprisoned.) What we love about this zoo is the themed areas -- like Yukon Bay, which is brilliant. Take a boat ride around part of the zoo. What... More

One of the best zoos I've been to in this part of Europe. Very organized and easy to navigate. The highlights for us and our 7yo were: the boat ride, the Indian courtyard and the elephants, the polar bear, and the gorillas. The sea world show is nice even if the voiceover is only in German.

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!
