The zoo is great, set on a large plot of land and has plenty of animals to see. There is a tunnel to walk underneath the swimming penguins which was fantastic. My only gripe is that it is incredibly hilly, so if you have trouble...More

Perfect, lovely, so much to see, many activities for (little & big) children, good food, several toilets, much to discover. We spend about 5 hours.

Kids really enjoyed spending time in the zoo, lots of walking but still worth it. We had a wonderful time.

The Zoo talks of itself in this way, and does have a bit of forest within. The Okavangi restaurant was one highlight for me. Others were the many benches for taking a rest, and some of the less often seen species. I liked that they...More

Have visited numerous times. Currently undergoing some upgrades, this doesn’t detract from the visit. Favourite this time was feeding the sea lions which includes a very cute baby sea lion. Excellent value, if a little hilly for those with mobility problems or small children. Recommended

Located on hill slopes, Wuppertal zoo is really beautiful and well managed. There is 100s of animals to see, and great jungle to walk up and down. Of course, when travelling with little kids, it becomes extra fun, as they are very curious of everything....More

This zoo was one of the best I've been to. There was a variety of animals, all with spacious enclosures. The zoo was located in a large area and involved a lot of walking. Entry and food were reasonably priced

We’ve been to many zoos and having read the reviews I thought Wuppertal would be better than it was. There are some good enclosures and a decent selection of animals but no more than you’d expect. It’s also hilly so be prepared for some steep...More
