Recently went to this zoo whilst visiting a friend in Dusseldorf. We spent hours hours here and was so surprised by the amount of animals in the zoo! It was great to see it in such a natural environment and not so man-made looking like many of the zoos in the UK. Great zoo and well worth a visit, if... More

We go to this Zoo every time we are in Germany. Our trip starts in Vohwinkel and we take the Suspension Railway to the Zoo Station. A short walk to the Zoo is lined by old Villas and beautiful gardens. The Zoo is build along the hill side so there is a lot of walking up and down hill. The... More

You'll need to be quite fit if you want to see the lions and tigers at the top of the steep slope that rises from the banks of the Wupper river, but once you you have reached the bush and forest habitat of the tigers and the vast grassy steppe where the lions roam, you will for sur think that...

The lush green Wuppertal Zoo is very easy to reach with public train transport. Once inside the Zoo offers some modern animal attractions such as the elephants' housing. Pushing a pram around can be a bit daunting as the Zoo is hilly. The kids play area draws the families wanting to take time out. Looking forward to a better dining... More

The zoo was really nice, with a lot of different kind of animals. Some of the pens were quite big and offered wide spaces for animals, but some others were a bit too small, I think. There were some big animals in the zoo, like lions, tigers, elephants and polar bears... Lions had a really huge area for them, but... More

I went to this zoo several times since I'm born in that town. Sure, its no comparison to the large, famous zoos all over the world. But its a unique one. Its set within a wonderful landscape, there are trees dozens or hundreds of years old, many different single paths you can walk by yourself and the whole design is... More

I took my granddaughter here on a recent trip from Australia. I forgot how hilly Wuppertal is, so think twice before getting a wagon to pull kids along. We loved it we actually went twice. They even showcase a green frog from far North Queensland in their reptile area. The restaurant is not too exciting and it needs a big... More
