Best attraction with kids!

Near the city center (15 minutes from the east side of old town), there is a lot of animals children love. Not expensive (20 euros per family).

One of the beautiful places to vist it doesn't matter wether you alone, with friends or as a family trip. You will enjoy the animals and the nature there. In fact it gives you that Safari feeling. I would advise to plan more hours probably a whole day so that you have enough time to watch the Animals. Feeding hours... More

This is a good zoo overall. It has a wide range of species which seem well looked-after and overall the place was clean and well laid out. The entrance fee is €10 for adults but if you have a Frankfurt Tourist Card you get in for half price which makes a visit good value for money. Some enclosures seem small... More

The Wife and I decided to visit the zoo as a spontaneous thing to do as it was just 900 meters from where we were. When we got there it only cost 10 euro per adult for us to get in which isn't too bad for a zoo. They do have a wide variety of animals but a few of... More

For such a wealthy and cosmopolitan city, Frankfurt's zoo is average. There are too many small cages and boring, unnatural habitats. Also, most of the signage was in German only. We got a children's trolley. But, I didn't appreciate the lecture from the gentleman at reception about returning the trolley before 6:00pm. He must have told us five times to... More

It pains me to write this sad review of the Frankfurt Zoo but frankly I was appalled at the state of the place when we visited last week. In a zoo with such rare and endangered primates as bonobos and other animals such as the Red maned Wolf, one would hope to find a clean, state of the art facility... More

Frankfurt zoo is ideally located in the centre of the city with easy parking available nearby. The zoo itself is perfect to keep a toddler entertained for a few hours. There are lots of different animals although we didn't see many for some unknown reason. The animals have ample room and for a city zoo seemed to be well looked... More

Beautifully remodeled your day with your kids will be a fantastic. The scientific leadership is worldwide renowned and the condition and way of treating all inhabitants here is above standard and forms one of the best zoo attractions all over Europe. Consider the Opel Zoo 20 miles away if you prefer even more walking and even spacier surroundings.
