“Wonderful day”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

The Hannover Zoo is a great place to visit when in Hannover with children but not only.
Great attractions nice arrangements, all in all a fun day out for the kids and adults alike.
The boat ride is very nice and the fact that you can at times get really close to the animals, only adds to a great experience.

“One of the best zoos in Europe”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Hannover Zoo is a fantastic day-trip for the whole family. The zoo itself is dedicated to keeping their animals happy and stimulated, and their main aim is to educate their visitors about the animals that they house.

Each exhibit is expertly suited to the animal it contains, and the animals seem content and relaxed. There are also themed areas - the Zambezi River, Yukon Bay, etc. My favourites included the polar bear enclosure - there's a huge swimming area and caves for them to hide in - the Bengal tigers and their pond, and the baby Indian elephants taking dust baths.

The zoo is very child-friendly, and dogs are even allowed! (on leashes, of course). There is a large playground area for children, and plenty of food stores and places to relax.

I don't usually support animals kept in captivity, but Hannover Zoo has made me think twice. They are a small enough zoo to provide exceptional animal care, and the educational side is invaluable.

A great day out with your other half, or the whole family!

“Good day out!”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

One of the best zoos that I have visited. The boat ride was very relaxing. Good choice on a sunny day and reasonably priced.

“Probably good but could not afford it”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

Ok didn't go in. Should have checked prices before travelling there. 25 Euros per adult means that this zoo is for adults with lots of spare money. Not me then!
