We were not expecting how large this zoo really is! It has several exhibits; from reptiles to an aquarium, monkey house, petting zoo, big cats, bird house, giraffes, and many types of smaller exotic animals. Since we visited in February, some exhibits were not open, but still plenty to see.

For 10 euro a person (adult), you could easily spend 3-4 hours at this zoo. It's very well maintained, and I was glad to see the animals looked comfortable in surroundings that seemed appropriate for their care. We enjoyed seeing many of them getting lunch!

Speaking of food, there's a couple of snack areas and a restaurant that is quick with Mexican style food. Everything was reasonably priced.

There's lots of interactive and educational spots for kids (in German), plus a larger play area.
All in all, a great place to enjoy your day! (And look for the baby giraffe!!! SO CUTE)

In January 2014, I spent an enjoyable morning visiting the Frankfurt Zoo.It is fun small fun zoo. It has a great monkey house. The nocturnal house was also well worth a visit.

I wasn't too concerned with the lack of English narrative, but there was no clear direction to take someone through a journey to see all the exhibits. Perhaps I should have purchased a map or took a picture of it at the start! Animals didn't look too happy on the day as it was cold, but staff showed compassion to the animals, which is always good to see.

The best was the tiger behind the glass wall. also the place where the giraffes were kept was amazing. just that the food options were not that great.
