City zoo and bigger than you may think

We were on a family holiday Driving through Germany in mid August and thought we would drop in. We had a large motor home and parking it nearby was almost impossible. I would... read more

I brought my children on a business trip and they needed something fun to do. This was definitely a great spot in Frankfurt! There was scariest of animals, good snacks and food and the staff was very nice! The best exhibit for my kids was the lion exhibit.

Very nice small zoo. In 2013 they had a baby tiger. It was also amazing to see. Also very clean and a very reasonable price.

All the information is in German which makes it difficult for those who don't understand a word. It could be better if we knew more about the animals we saw.

We were on a family holiday Driving through Germany in mid August and thought we would drop in. We had a large motor home and parking it nearby was almost impossible. I would suggest taking a bus. The Layout is well designed so you can follow a route and see all the animals without having to double back. I found... More

What a odd experience, going to a zoo in the middle of the city. I was only 10 euros entry fee which I think is great for an attraction. Really big and alot to see. I really enjoyed the day.

Our visit to the zoo was a wonderful experience. While we expected to see the animals in their outside enclosures, we were delighted with the nocturnal animal exhibit and the Exotarium with reptiles. We spent over an hour here and had a great time. There were also places to get something to eat and a drink for a hot day.... More

I was here several time and of course with schoolclasses. Therefore it is a good place and that's the main purpose: You can learn about and expierence different types of animals. Best and interesting part for me is the house of insects and Exatorium with it's dirrfent typs of reptiles. But in the end it ffels like an old park... More

This zoo is located right in the city. From the outside, you cannot see how truly large it is. The zoo is clean with a lot of interesting twists and turns. The monkey exhibit was a lot of fun. They were very active and loud. Many different animals to see. We were there on a Saturday in August and it... More
