Owner description: Tiergarten Nuremberg is set in an extraordinary and unique landscape. By taking a walk through the large, densely wooded park the visitors discover open-air enclosures skilfully fitted into the red sandstone of the region. Watch dolphins and sea lions swim and play in the open air at the Dolphin Lagoon. Explore life at the Amazon, complete with rainfall periods, at the Manatee House. Go to the Blue Saloon with its vast panorama windows and experience the fascinating underwater world of both manatees and dolphins. Children will love the Kinderzoo, where they can pet animals and discover a lot more...

“A nice afternoon”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

It was lovely to spend some time at the zoo and to see the animals that are not found in Australia but overall I was a little disappointed. The highlight for me was the vulture and it was AMAZING!!! The biggest disappointment to us was the polar bear enclosure. The viewing windows had green mould on them and there were bottles and rubbish in the water and enclosure. Once we had seen this, it put a dampener on the rest of the afternoon. Overall I would visit again and hope that it is a little cleaner next time.

“Nice Zoo”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

I spent over five hours walking this zoo. It's big and there were animals that I have never seen before. Some of the water tanks really did need some heavy cleaning but I really enjoyed the one on one with the animals and getting to see them up close. It was neat to see the feeding of the tiger and lions. The restaurant food was really good too. Much different than the US zoo's in that we only have nasty snack bars.
