“Great for children and grown ups”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

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 facelift.

“A park with animals, hilly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

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The whole venue is a bit outdated the chrame is a bit 70s but for only 12 € you get a very large area which in itself is beautiful with the trees, lakes and flowers all aorund (there is some wildlife in the zo running free) which makes for a very nice walk. Beware it is very hilly but all areas can be accessed without stairs.

Some animals have really big areas (lions, elephants) and just as I am writing this, there are two very cute baby elephants at the zoo. Feeding times are posted. What I did like most is that the african penguins have a very nicely built area, with huge glass walls so you can watch them swim.

All in all it makes for a nice 2-3 hour walk with nice animals.

“Excellent feeling about this zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

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 not too expensine

“One of the nicest zoos I've been to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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 nice exhibits to look through. When comparing it to the DC zoo or the Bronx Zoo, of course it doesn't have the same amount of nice buildings and attractions, but in the most important part, the animals, it's comparable.

It is one of my favorite things about Wuppertal, and I was very surprised to find such a high quality zoo in this city. It's also very convenient to get to by Schwebebahn!
