We found this zoo perfect and complete. Beautiful places and locations had been designed very good according to genre, type of each animals. I suggest to each people who has interests on nature and wild life, to spend enough time more than 6 hours to can get a complete tour in this zoo.

It was very cold when we went but the zoo was really quiet because of this and the fact it was a school day in Germany There were a lot of different animals and you could get a good view of them all.The kids really enjoyed it and the food in the cafe was reasonable. There were also a few... More

We went to this zoo with my 6yr old grandson. I don't agree with zoo's generally, but he wanted to see a polar bear. A good day out it has to be said but a zoo is a zoo, and a cage no matter how well its kitted out, still remains a cage. We arrived about 11am and stayed all... More

We have small kids and visit the zoo about once every 1-2 years. This was our 4th and last visit. It is an absolutely over priced activity (€87 for a family of 4). There are 3 major things wrong with this place: 1. People are allowed to smoke and they do it everywhere. 2. The 'special shows' have not been... More

We were pleasantly surprised by Erlebnis Zoo even though some of the animals, such as the Giraffes and Zebras weren't present do to problems with their terrain. We have visited the zoo in Hamburg for the last couple of years, where theirs is a really pretty well kept zoo, Erlebnis has a more theme park feel to it, with different... More

A very enjoyable visit to the adventure Zoo in Hannover. Great attractions - India themed elephant enclosure, Alaskan themed polar station as well as a great play ground with adventure castle and massive sand pit! All this is rounded up in the end with a beautiful Farmers range (Bauernhaus) und staples. Very enjoyable family day!

We have been to a lot of different zoos, but this one is overall the best one we have been to so far! This was our second time here. t has a lot of great attraction for the kids (ours are 3,5,7 years old), and you get really close to the animals. We love it!

We saw a make believe African School and a village. We learnt that there are 3 types of zebras. There were lions, zebras, penguins, even leopards and elephants. You could touch ivory. I would recommend this to everyone. Yukon Bay had a lone wolf - quite literally. We also saw Kangaroos. We saw wading birds, Flamingos, raccoons, langurs, giraffes and... More

So we go to a lot of zoos - in all sorts of places. And this one was really very nice. Not huge but lovely layout and decent selection of animals. The Yukon bit and the Indian sections are both really impressive and wouldn't look out of place in a world class theme park. And - like everywhere we went... More
