  • A smaller zoo but wonderfully layed out and tons of fun. It was especially cool to be there during feeding time.
  • Situated in the center of the city, you will find in this small zoo from polar bears and seals to chimps and tropical birds. It's a must see if you visit Bremerhaven
  • A smaller Zoo (but this is reflected in the entry prices as well; thumbs up). A round through the Zoo is probably something like 2-3 hours. Nice for kids featuring a large playground.
  • So pretty animals in a wonderul maritim based zoo park. Was a pleasure to be here!
  • Chimps? Really? Otherwise very nice.
