“This zoo has penguins & a tiger too :-D”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We spent about 3.5 hours at the Frankfurt zoo. Its easily accessible by the U bahn & the trams but since it was a beautiful spring day, we decided to walk along the river Main & then the stretch along the Wallanlagen upto Zeil.
The zoo is clean and kid friendly and has WC at every 10 minutes and at the entrance. It has a locker room & one can also hire trolleys that can easily carry 2-3 small children or 4-5 rucksacks. There are also some food stalls & ice-cream stalls with a big enough spielplatz/ play ground for children.
We made it in time for the seal show (3:30 pm) - they danced & played with their guardians with balls & rings etc. Highly recommend the following at the Zoo (in no specific order): Tiger, Pet corner, Nocturnal animals, Giraffes, Reptiles & ants and termites, Penguins and many many birds...

“Good for children”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

If you have kids, it´s worth spending an afternoon there. But I have seen better zoos before. I was very disappointed when I saw only 1 bear there. I was wondering the whole time if he doesnt have another one of his species there so he doesnt feel so bored. The best part in my opinion is the one where they have the monkeys.
