If one likes zoos then the Zoo Duisburg will not disappoint. Explore the zoo's informative website prior to a visit. Entrance fees are reasonably priced for what the zoo has to offer. Bring time to spend at the zoo, as the areal is big and as the zoo offers a vast amount of animals, including koalas, dolphins, penguins, elephants, giraffes,... More

Over the last years the zoo has improved very much. The aquarium has been finished and is very impressive. It is really worse to visit, alone or with family. I will return.

Great for a day out with the kids. It's substantial and would need at least 1/2 - 3/4 of a day if you want to do a walk around with a stop at the dolphin show. Half of the aquarium section was under renovations, but I guess this should be finished soon. Overall, a pleasant experience despite us not understanding... More

A must when you are in Duisburg. Good to be reached by tram. In Duisburg zoo you have, beside lots of other animals, koalas, dolphins and meerkat. Once a year there is a runners event where the runners run on the tracks of the zoo along the animals in their cages or theit enclosures,

I had already been to this zoo about 2 years ago and must say that it has gotten even better since then! Last time they were doing some work in the aquarium next to the Pink River Dolphin, which is now open. They have got a really nice but small selection of fish which means there is enough to impress... More

Its a pretty nice zoo and the only one I've eve been to thats so close to a highway since the highway runs through the zoo - but you never notice that unless you enter the bridge thats even surrounded by nature. There are many walkways but not too many so that you don't see the same things for too... More
