“Best zoo in Germany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

If you are travelling with children, the Wilhelma zoo is a must see for the whole day. Many different animals in big space and most in really good conditions. The area is great with some good restaurants and some real good attractions.

“Must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

This is a fantastic zoo but the gardens are even better. Wilhelma is a good way for a family to spend the day surrounded by beautifully maintained hedgerows and world-class animal exhibits. While there is food available in the park, feel free to bring your own lunch, snacks, or drinks along. You can sit and relax at one of several benches, porches or gazebos throughout the park.

“Great for nature-like tourist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Just expect some animals and plants, but it provide more than expectations with good exhibition. To fully explore, you may need at least 1.5 hours to take a look all. It worths to see!!

“Big zoo!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

Be prepared to spend about 3-4hours if you want to see the zoo properly as it takes that long to walk around and see everything. We particularly liked the big polar bears that were jumping into the water and swimming when we were there which I've never seen from polar bears in zoos before. They are building a massive new enclosure which I believe is for the apes.

Entrance will cost you €8 during the winter. You can reach the zoo easily on the U/S bahn at Wilhema stop.
