  • We had already read good reviews about this zoo and indeed expectations are not dashed, a wide variety of animals inhabit this park, well-groomed and with ample spaces, do not miss the Aquarium, Reptile House and Insectarium

  • Very good maintained zoo. Nice exhibits and animals have a lot of space. Enjoyed the pandas and the exhibition they are in. A lot of detailed information about animal welfare, natural environment and risks of extinction. Pricing is reasonable, do enjoy a drink or diner in the zoo. Quality is of German level. Enjoyed it a lot and would go here again if the opportunity is there. And do enjoy the park that survived the war (more information about the history is in the park and especially in the giraffes exhibit).
  • I went to this zoo to see the pandas and I wasn't disappointed. I found the layout of the zoo to be very 'walking' friendly and there are a large numbers of animals on display including some magnificent white wolves. The bears looked in superb condition and all the animals looked well cared for. This must be a very pretty zoo when all the trees and shrubs are in leaf. As already stated in another review the entrance fees are reasonable likewise the food and drink in the restaurant. Not crowded during my visit because of the cold weather.
  • Very large, great variety of animals. Staff spoke a multitude of languages which was very helpful. The layout was easily accessible. The zoo wasn't expensive either €21 for zoo and aquarium. Play area for children and could easily spend a day there!
  • A beautiful historic zoo that has a wide variety of animals and species from all continents. The Zoo is arranged extremely well with close up views of the different enclosures. There a many different shops, cafe's and restaurants throughout the zoo that serve high quality food. Overall I loved the experience of the zoo and would highly recommend it.
  • Great zoo! The animals had plenty of space, both inside and outside. There was a farm in which you could feed some animals and pet them, and they all seemed pretty happy with their lives. The restaurant, by the way, has amazing food! And the zoo is so big you can spend the entire day in it
