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

You can get very easily to Wuppertal Zoo, just 2 minutes form the a 46 and the Schwebebahn has a station pretty close by. Parking spaces are large and free of charge. The whole venue is a bit outdated the chrame is a bit 70s but for only 12 € you get a very large area which in itself is... More

This zoo is really worthwile to visit. Although it s not too modern and a very big restaurant is closed there is a lot op space in the zoo. A bit hilly, so you are tired after walking there for four hours. The pinguins are unique. A pleasant and quiet zoo with a lot of animals. Food and drinks are... More

The Wuppertal Zoo is one of the nicer zoos I've been to, in an old fashioned kind of way. Many of the cages are built in a way that there really isn't much between you and the animal, and that's pretty different from other zoos I've been to. It's a pretty large zoo, and they have a lot of really... More

Wuppertal Zoo is quite surprising. It's expansive, well maintained, well serviced and in a very central part of Wuppertal Barmen. I've been to Wuppertal many times over the years visiting family, but this was the first visit to the Zoo. It's very easy to get to, either off of the A46 or from the Schwebebahn (direction OberBarmen). The animals were... More
