Nothing special
Jul 2020 • Family
Really... Nothing special. Over crowded. Many animals just sleeping far away. Although it is a nice park (as a park). Absolutely not worth the time and money.

It was a great experience going to the zoo park Hagenbeck!!
We had a little time when we went so we chose to get in the aquarium!!
It was so clean, interesting and it had a big sort of animals!!
It was like you were in a discovering were its every animal and it was more exciting like that!! You were close to some of them!! You have to visit this place when you go in Hamburg!!

Dec 2019 • Family
Came to the zoo as we alway try and visit one when on holiday. Lots of animals to see, particularly like the penguins, seals and walrus’

It was a cold day so lots of the animals where trying to keep warm, but still plenty to see.

Also visited the aquarium,it was nice but we have been to better, but plenty to look at.

Overall it was a nice visit, but not the best zoo and aquarium we have been to.

Excellent day...even in wet weather
Dec 2019 • Family
We visited with our 6 month old and 3 year old and had a great day! We visited on a very rainy day but despite this, we were there from opening til 4pm covering the park and the aquarium. The double ticket is well worth it.

The animals had great space and everything was relatively open. It was nice to see rabbits, peacocks and an array of birds just wondering around.

The marine section was a highlight and really well laid out. Seeing walruses was really cool! The only drawback to the weather was that the big cats remained indoors.

On entry, you could buy bags of food to feed some animals. It was nice that it was not a big commercial venture; it was a donation and there was no rush to animals to do it all at once.

There was loads of space - really easy terrain with a buggy. The walkways were good and wide.

Food options were great and reasonably priced.

The adventure playground was great fun for our 3 year old.

Having the aquarium next door was great and meant a full day of fun. No buggies were allowed inside but they had baby carriers on offer. We did not use but it was a great family friendly perk.

We loved the day, would highly recommend and would definitely take the boys back.

You get a few euros off with the Hamburg card too.

Great Zoo
Oct 2019
My godson and his little brother really love zoos and their parents and I brought them to this famous zoo in Germany. The parents told me that they had the best array of animals, and they were allowed to feed certain animals such as monkeys, elephants and lamas. They have stalls providing food after passing the entrance and the min-car/trolley area. There are no fees but you are encouraged to make a donations, which most people do. Even one or two euros are appreciated by the staff. The kids have a fun times feeding the elephants and other animals.

I really love the Polar World especially seeing the penguins. We even managed to see them feeding the sea lions. Unfortunately they all obviously spoke German but in general, you did not really need to know the language to know what they were doing. There were English brochures though for those who need more information.

They also sold a combo ticket to their tropical aquarium, but I won't buy the tickets to the tropic aquarium unless you plan to stay there for the whole day because the zoo was huge. It took us almost a whole day to visit just the regular zoo.

Food was also limited because October was their low season. Many of the food stalls were closed and the only place opened were some fast food places. The food was typical fast food but service was slow because there was only one or two people working. I will pack some small snacks like bread and trail mix for young kids.

It was a fun zoo to go with the kids.

Great time at the zoo, at least three hours entertainment. Two minutes walk from the metro. You have to pay for toilets.

Wonderful zoo
Oct 2019 • Family
We were really surprised at how much we enjoyed our visit. We were able to get close to so many animals. The walruses and elephants were an absolute highlight. We got there at opening time and it was so quiet it felt like we were the only ones there. Recommend stopping for a coffee in the orangutan area - what a view!

Excellent zoo
Oct 2019 • Family
This zoo is one of the better ones we have been. Animals seemed to be ok within their confinement. Of course no one liked to be in the cage, but there might be some benefits in keeping them from extinction.
Anyway my son loves zoos, so I go with him.
The location is a bit far from town. The prices were standard especially when they also have a small but good aquarium in the same compound. The design and cleanliness were German which is good. Food was a bit boring though.
Would go back if we go to Hamburg next times.

So many baby animals
May 2019
I love zoos and this one is definitely one of the best I've been to. Great natural habitats for the animals, so many babies, and you can feed the elephants!

Elephants
Oct 2019 • Couples
At the entrance you have a choice of tickets to the Zoo or Aquarium or both.
I thought the Aquarium was pretty average and much preferred the Zoo. It’s set in pleasant park, some of the animals looked bored and could have done with larger enclosures.
The highlight of our visit were the elephants. You can buy bags of food to feed them from the gift shop. It’s amazing how close you get to them and some were doing tricks like standing on one leg.
If you don’t want a snack from the food stalls, the restaurant serves good food.
