Owner description: Tiergarten Nuremberg is set in an extraordinary and unique landscape. By taking a walk through the large, densely wooded park the visitors discover open-air enclosures skilfully fitted into the red sandstone of the region. Watch dolphins and sea lions swim and play in the open at the Dolphin Lagoon. Explore life at the Amazon, complete with rainfall periods, at the Manatee House. Go to the Blue Saloon with its vast panorama windows and experience the fascinating underwater world of both manatees and dolphins. Children will love the Kinderzoo, where they can pet animals and discover a lot more...

“Nuremberg Zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

We were astounded by the tropical house - manatee's, fish, frogs, birds, butterflies, iguana and monkeys all in one area you walk through. This is one of the best zoo's I have ever been to - we might even go back, despite it being a flight only destination for us. We also loved the snow leopards, and red panda's.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

I felt sorry for some of the animals being enclosed in such small and unnatural spaces, especially the Dolphins. The layout itself is quite nice and there is a diverse range of animals, although there are a lot better Zoos around the world. The facilities are good.

“Nice Venue and Parkland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Built in an area of parkland, the visit to the zoo offerred an opportunity to take a pleasant walk whilstv vieing a range of animal species. If there is a correct approach to keeping animals in captivity, then Nuremburg is the way forward.

“Dolphine show!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

I am very happy that I had opportunity to visit this zoo. I had wonderful time here. Everything was very nice, but I especially loved manatees! ♥ Dophine show was so so so funny! :) The botanic part was the best, I took many pictures there. I recommend this friendly zoo to everybody!

“Fun for everyone of all ages!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Took the tram from Nuremberg Hauptbahnhof to the zoo, fantastic to ride through the trees directly to the zoo entrance. Good price for entry and very clean. A fantastic variety of animals to look at, we especially enjoyed the dolphins. A nice selection of food available in the restaurant, again very clean and friendly, helpful staff. Really enjoyed our day out, lots to see. Toilets also very clean and well presented.
