Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
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...

“Very nice zoo for kids!”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

This is a great zoo: not too big, and very well-laid-out. It's just the right size for kids: they can see lots of animals in really good environments, without getting tired out. We love this place! And they have snow leopards!

“Impressive tropical ravine with manatis”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

Spent a grey wet day in zoo, despite this the tropical ravine was impressive and the manati basin a nice surprise, also the dolphin training and sea lions show wort watching, plenty of things to do for all ages with nice extensive play ground and kids zoo with feeding opportunity. Watch out however, zoo dies not accept credit cards or non ec cash cards, no cash machine in sight, we were pretty stuck!!!

“One of the best zoos I've ever been”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

Zoo is located in woods and creates feeling that you are in nature. We visited zoo in winter, so not all animals were displayed, but anyways worth visiting. They have petting zoo with pigs, cows, etc. 2-3 playgrounds for children and aquarium. Be careful when taking taxi to zoo, because there are no taxis nearby to go back. Instead you can take tram/train to center of city right across the street.
