We've been there couple times, it's very good for families with young children. The fast food offered there is not that bad.

This was a great choice for a day out. Very reasonably priced entry, easy to find your way around and a big variety of animals. Lovely to see a baby camel! Definitely worth a visit.

I enjoyed visiting the Dortmund Zoo. The animal enclosures were often large, open areas. I especially liked the White Rhinos, knowing that there are few left and none in the wild anymore. There were beautiful flamingos gathered closely together as it was a cold day,...More

A visit to the Dortmund Zoo is worthwhile. There is a variety of interesting animals to see. Giant otters and tapirs, among others, can be admired here. The zoo is a suitable place for a walk. The signposts are great. The paths are well laid...More
