“Great idea for a sunny day activity in Frankfurt”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We were pleasantly surprised by the Zoo in Frankfurt. Fair price to see the interesting nocturnal animals which are not too commonly seen in zoos. Also nice place to walk through that won't take too long and is easily accessible with the Frankfurt underground.

Definitely worth a try -- the kids seemed to love it and we (as adults) also had a good time.

“Poor animals...:(”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

I love animals!!! But it is unenjoyable to watch them in Frankfurt Zoo... The territory of the Zoological Garden is rather small, so animals don't have enough space to exist...
Maybe it worth it to go there for making a donation for poor animals, but it's not the best way to enjoy the day!!! I felt after that rather sad, than happy...:(

“Nice and clean zoo”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

The zoo is conveniently within the city and reachable by the underground
Parking is very difficult over there
The animal variety is good, you get a close look on lots of animals and insects
The information provided beside the animals is convenient but could be more
I have to admit though that I enjoyed the zoo in Montreal more than this one
The gift shop is also nice offering a variety of souvenirs

“small city zoo”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Great if you want to do something else than musea and shops. Perfect with little children. Of course it is just a small city zoo, but a nice change compared to the rest of the town!

“Small is beautiful”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

Frankurt's Zoo is relatively small but it is quite complex. It hosts a full building (Grzimek Haus) for night animals.
