We had a nice day strolling around the zoo. Very well cared for grounds. Lots of interesting animals. All signs were in German so we had a hard time reading them. Lots of okay areas for children. We went on a Monday and it was not very crowded.

While it is a bit expensive, you will get to see not only animals but also plants, which were very beautiful. There are some green areas where you can sit and let the children play. Also, make sure you get there early to see some of the scheduled events, like the feeding of the sea lions, that was awesome!

it is a really very good historical and attractive zoo. you can watch many animals. there are many playgrounds. the restaurants inside are standard, but not the best. the sourrounding (park) and the service is friendly...(watching feeding the animals and ask questions)

Visited the zoo in December 2015 during our stay in Stuttgart entry fee is cheap for the size of the zoo. Had a wide variety of animals and a lovely garden area to walk through.

Great day out, lots to see in the zoo and the gardens are really pretty to walk round. Lots of places to stop for drinks, most of which serve beer!! Good price to get in and easy to get to by train!

Great for an afternoon, so much to see and very well maintained. We just arrived in Stuttgart from an international flight. This was a perfect thing to do to adjust into vacation. Very clean, lots to see, nice stroll threw the botanical gardens is a good way to relax!

I was little sceptical to go to the zoo, as i thought it is small and not much to see... How wrong was i, it is large, pretty, a lot to see and great collection of animals!!
