“Nice Zoo!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2011

I wasn't sure what to expect since it was freezing temperatures outside plus fog, but it was such a nice surprise. This zoo features mostly cold weather animals and you feel like you can reach out and touch the animals by the zoo's lay out. We saw penguins, seals, pumas, polar bears, etc. And it was just 5 euros to get in. PLus it close to other tourist attractions in Bremerhaven! Kids and adults alike would really enjoy it!

“a nice small zoo, two hours well spent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2010

The zoo in Bremerhaven is the smallest I know, actually it takes around 10-15 min to walk around the exterior walls. It is nicely situated close to other main attractions (Schiffahrtsmuseum) and despite being small it makes a lot of it. It concentrates on sea animals so there is one of the largest penguins areas I know of and here as in all other water animals they have large vieweing windows so you can see the animals under water. If you want to spned two hours or so looking at polar bears, penguins and the like, go there.

“Great Small Zoo - Don't Miss It!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2009

This small Zoo am Meer (Zoo by the Sea) was the highlight of Bremeraven for us. It has just celebrated its 80th year, but was completely renovated in the last couple of years. The focus of the zoo is, of course, on the sea lions and seals that populate the North Sea just off the coast of Germany. The conservation and education programs are extensive for such a small zoo, and we were extremely impressed with every member of the staff with whom we came in contact. They were friendly and ready to answer any questions. The feeding of the sea lions was very informative: not just a show, but a small lesson in breeding, group or family formation, and eating habits of the animals.
