I'm not a fan of zoos always but I know they do a lot of good work with conservation. We enjoyed the trip around the little waterway but on the whole I felt the gorilla looked really sad and bored and barged up to window and shoulder barged it and also the polar bear enclosure didn't look that bit and...

One of the best Zoos you can find in Germany. The Zoo is going a longterm transformation from a former visitor centric Zoo with bad condutions for the animals to a entertaining Zoo where animals are treated with equivalent rights. The animals live in thematic enclosures, have more Space and often are not separated but live together with other animals... More

The zoo offers a great variety of animals and puts a great deal of effort (and investment) into creating attractive environments (Yukon, Africa, India, etc.). They also have a very nice restaurant and beer garden, Meyer's Hof, that you can sometimes get to without paying the entrance fee - afternoons and evenings, as I recall. One very cool highlight there... More

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.

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
