We've been twice now and love it here. Parking is 5 Euro and other than that, it's free to visit with the animals and play on the various playgrounds. We learned after our first visit to bring a bunch of 2 Euro coins as that is the only thing the feed machines take. The signage is great- green signs on fences mean you can feed the animals, red signs mean DO NOT feed animals or you will pay a fine and be asked to leave. You can go in the goat enclosure to feed them which is fun, and some animals have little chutes from the fence and you send the feed down the chute to them. Feeding the Scottish Cows is our favorite! Also, we brought our dog this past time and she loved sniffing all the animals through the fences. We saw many other dogs visiting, just make sure they are leashed! Plenty of picnic tables if you want to bring a lunch...or you can stop by their beirgarten.

Great place to have fun with the family without spending a lot of money. Lots of animals you can hand feed, four play areas, and a biergarten to get snacks and beverages. Only cost is parking - 5€ on weekend, 2 or 3€ during week. Food boxes are 1€ each and actually have a lot of food in them. Even all the adults in our group enjoyed feeding the animals. There are not many hand washing stations so bring wet wipes and hand sanitizer. Also have picnic areas if you want to bring your own snacks.

This is a very well put together park as reflected in most of the reviews.

The only issue I had (which dropped it a star) was that none of the wildlife information placards were in English.

I found it quite strange (and a bit mean) that there is no signage in English for visitors wishing to learn about the wide assortment of wildlife and plants, but plenty of English signage governing the rules of the park, such as "Do not feed, pay the damage, get expelled from the park."etc.,etc

Sadly one only gets a lesson in German order, but nothing of the knowledge and joy of wildlife.

Regardless the park is free and very nice, especially for families. Just bring a translator if you wish to teach your children about the animals.

Good Points:

Its is free entry for everyone,
Open daily
Nicely made for the animals to stay in their natural habitat
Access to touch or feed animals is fun for kids and adults both

Bad Points:

The variety of animals is extremely poor. you will see mostly sheeps/goats/pigs/deers/Chicken etc only which are not wild animals in any way
Most of the Wild Animals found in jungles are missing (Dont Know why they call it a wildpark)
Directions as to where which animals are kept is missing, you tend to get lost as hardly any signboards available

A Disappointment!!!!!!!

Lived here over a year, will not miss the town. Love the Wildpark, though. It is really pretty, lots of animals, and it is free. It was fun to feed some of them even as a grown Man. I don't know how Milind M. can call the place a disaster, it's a free zoo! That review makes no sense, so please disregard it.

First off, Pforzheim Wildpark is free to all guests! It makes for a nice afternoon outside with the kids and you don't have to spend a lot of money. Parking is 5 euro and you can purchase food to feed the animals which costs 1 euro per box. There is a lot to see and do there from watching the feeding of the Lynx (large wild cat), to feeding ox, sheep, deer, etc, looking at moose and other wild animals, and to petting numerous animals in the petting zoo area. Also worth mentioning is the playgrounds they have for the kids, I think I counted 3 separate ones. They also have an otter show where they feed the otters in the large outside pond/aquarium. My kids had a great time there and including brats on the grill with pommes, I think we spent under 30 euro for a family of four to eat, feed animals, and park! The Wildpark makes for a nice afternoon with the family!

A free animal park with some places for children to unwind. All ‘safe’ animals. There is a cafe on site.

We went there, a family with 3 kids (7,5,2) and everyone enjoyed it.
The animals looks like they are taking care of, and we saw many animals for the first time. We enjoyed feeding them, and looking.
There are few playgrounds for kids that we also enjoyed.
Please note that it's almost impossible to see the big cats, unless you come during feeding time (I think at 14:00 at Friday-Sunday, but I'm not sure).
A great place to spend s morning or an afternoon.

This is a nice small park filled with animals mainly found in Germany. There are other animals and majority of the animals can be fed by children and petted. There is no entry fee, but you have to pay for parking. Stay for the Lynx feeding (main attraction).

This Zoo is somehow small with not so many animals
however it is nice to visit with your kids
I would suggest that they translate some of the info since everything is written in Deutsch
