So this zoo is quite a way from the center of Munich and you'll have to get a bus or taxi. The area where the zoo is actually really lovely. The zoo itself is awesome and the best zoo I've ever visited. The polar bears were great to see. A lot of little shops to buy food and gifts there,... More

My family of 4 visited this zoo in early January. We all felt it was a great zoo. The animal housings we well done, and the animals looked well taken care of. We saw some animals we hadn't seen before, and we all loved watching the primates in their housing. It was a little cold walking around, but many of... More

This zoo is the best zoo I have ever been to, in the world! The animals were all looking quite happy and moving around and bars / small cages are really not an issue - as my pictures will show the animals are separated by fences and moats so you really get a great look at them. The zoo is... More

What a wonderful place to spend a couple of hours. Despite going in the winter time (they are also open on Christmas Day), the natural beauty was amazing. It is clear from the enclosures that the zoo is well maintained, and the animals really look well taken care of. They have a wide range of animals, which will keep both... More

This is a great zoo. Huge. great variety of animals, from giraffes to polar bears. We went first thing in the morning (9AM) and it was raining and cold, but it was still nice. There are kids parks and cafes (and restrooms) spread throughout, although not open when we were there in the early morning freezing rain, but I'm sure... More

Although I visited during winter, the zoo still had plenty to offer. There were lots of animals outside, even the african ones. The aquarium is a must-see

big zoo area with lots of animals and very well organized. Unfortunately, not all the texts contains an english language translation. For those, whose do not know german language will miss some information. It worth around three hours visit to see everything or more if going with kids.
