Worth a visit

I like the zoo in Bremerhaven. It's very small but still interesting. My last visit a few weeks ago was to see Lily, the new baby polar bear. What a beautiful cub!.

Firstly, do not expect something on the scale of London, Berlin or even Bristol zoo. This is a very specialist zoo and is within a very small footprint. We came as my wife was visiting Bremen and I wanted to take her somewhere different. This is a very compact place but with a decent selection of animals. The Highlights have... More

There are some nice stories to tell about this zoo, for example about the gay penguins and how the people complained when the zoo tried to get them some girls from Sweden. And so this zoo became famous for its gay penguins. The big glass around the penguin area allows you to see how they swim underwater which is always... More

This is a small zoo with fairly small enclosures. We saw a polar bear, sea lions, penguins, other aquatic animals, and a few non-aquatic animals. There is a path to follow so you see all of the animals. We were there on a windy, freezing cold day (not recommended).

If you inside town, this place is a must. Only a view stepps from town, in front of the river Weser. Its smallbut you see many animals, most of them from the north. Its very excited to be close this icebears and others. So go there to enjoy this place with your family.

Lovely location, overlooking the sea. Wonderful for children because the enclosures are all glassed so that the animals, penguins, seals etc. can be seen up close and personal. Nice opportunity to see a polar bear. You have to follow a fairly narrow route, which can be irritating if very crowded. There is a lovely little play area for children which... More

This is the only zoo which you find on the sea. Worth spending few hours or a whole day. If the weather is nice, the place offers quite a lot.
