    Very nice zoo, animals well cared for... the Giraffe told me so.
    The zoo grounds are quite big, the animals have large spaces which seem reasonable according to the respective species. It is obvious that the animals are properly cared for. We could only afford to spend around four hours here and we did the whole round but you could easily spend a day especially if you're with kids. If you're a pressed penny collector, they have three machines here or so I was told but I could only find two.

    Great zoo for spending day with family
    Really enjoyed this zoo. Wide variety of animals, many cohabitating in shared large shared enclosures. Zoo is set in a forested park area, lots of shade which was appreciated on a sunny summer day. There is a decent aquarium on site too. Lots of quality food options, much better quality and value than US zoos. Great option for families with kids.

    Good zoo for one time visit
    The good: Huge range of animals including polar bears. Most exhibits well cared for well. Interpretation signs in German and English The bad: Very few toilets Expensive food as per tourist areas in Europe. (Aldi to Go was our budget saver, everything you need for a good lunch in a special section at Aldi stores) The ugly: Construction in many parts of the zoo. Would I visit again? No, once is enough.

    Family-Friendly Zoo
    I recently visited the zoo with my family, and it exceeded our expectations! The facilities for kids were outstanding, offering engaging and educational activities. The well-maintained exhibits provided a fantastic learning experience while keeping the little ones entertained. Highly recommended for a fun and educational day out!

    year-round highlight
    I was a little surprised how many animals were out on exhibit in mid-December, but temps were in the low 40s... and most have fur coats. The most shocking and distinctive note was visitors walking dogs around the zoo. Some of the animals were NOT having it, or maybe they were jealous?!?

We decided to visit the zoo on Sunday and got stuck in a huge queue that wouldn't move anywhere for several hours. We had a small child in the car. Bad signalization, terrible policeman yelling at people that wanted to enter the zoo, no orientation. After three hours we decided to leave.

We like going to zoos and photographing animals, and usually go midweek because it should be quieter than weekends. We spent 4 hours here surrounded by constant screaming - from small children in baby buggies. The animals were mostly as far away as possible from the people (who can blame them) apart from the very stressed (and limping) tiger who constantly paced up and down its enclosure.

This zoo is squarely aimed at people with toddlers - there are playgrounds every 5 minutes, and for them this is a good place. Otherwise there are plenty of lovely things to do In Munich, and I would not recommend coming here.

Overpriced and no staff around. Feedings and presentations cancelled. High number of shops selling overprices food and drinks. No picnic or seating area for families to rest and eat. No locker rooms to store backpacks and other personal items, instead, they make you hire a trolley. Toilets dirty.

Visited with family recently. Not an impressive zoo. I have seen Vienna and some other zoos in europe and munich is not at that level.

The cafes to get refreshment are few. I went to so called "Rhino cafe " to get some pommes for kids and the old lady there behaved in a nasty way . BTW I speak very good german though i am foriegner and i ordered 2 pommes and water and she started "scheisse Pommes" .. i have never seen that a shopkeeper will make such comments .

No need to visit again

A cold, snowy Monday in December, there were few guests around but it was still great to see the lovely animals and to see how well they’re looked after.
This zoo is a must when visiting Munich and exceptionally easy to get to on the U-Bahn.
