With my wife shopping in Dortmund, I needed to escape for a few hours and the zoo was the perfect answer. Great to have a walk around the beautifully keep grounds and see all the animals, with a heavy emphasis on South American species. Camen...More

A beautiful zoo!! Although I think that the entrance fee was a little bit expensive! 8 euros per person. You need enough time to see everything in the zoo..

Great place for big and small. Easy to use map for navigation. Great improvements over the years (bigger/better)but still remains and place of nostalgia from my childhood. €8 entry per person is value for money...staff was also very friendly. Danke 💛

It was a drizzly day so the place was completely empty which was nice. It was bigger than it looked so took longer to walk round. The woman at the ticket office didn't speak a word of English but we got there. I'd never seen...More
