Some of the more popular animals here are the polar bears, the South American sea lions, seals, and Humboldt penguins. Look for a number of reptiles and land animals, such as the mountain lion and the chimpanzee. Check for animal feeding times on the zoo's website.

  • A small zoo with a clear choice of smaller animals near the Klimahaus. Who expected large and lots of wild animals, which unfortunately will be disappointed.

  • Great Zoo, it comes close to the animals all is clean and well labeled. Admission €9, and dogs may be for €1 in the Zoo. We have spent just under 1.5 hours at the Zoo and can only recommend it.

  • Zoo am meer is a nice small zoo. It focuses on cold weather animals. It does not try to cramp everything and lose focus. The animals looks happy with big area to roam around. It is very informative with a lots of educational data/activity especially at the aquarium section. There is also a playground for kids to enjoy. Overall, you will feel that the animals are happy living here and it gives such a positive and satisfying atmosphere.
  • Not so big but wonderful and so interesting! Especially if you get a chance to see how they feed animals there! Unforgettable both for kids and grown-ups!
  • Fine outing in Bremerhaven. Small zoo that is big on marine linked animals, chimps and polar bears. Small covered aquarium is a nice choice when raining. With some extra science divulging activities for children. Best of all: when the animals are fed, the zookeeper will patiently answer all (or most of the) questions.
  • Little zoo with different countryside animals and few more for surprise. Seems like the owners love to have them there. Beautiful and peaceful place!
  • Theres a gay penguin here, I would give it 5 stars but I just feel he wasnt as camp as they had advertised on TV
