  • The Zoo is quite small, the price of EUR 9 is actually too high. But there are Pumas. Not every Zoo has these animals.

  • We were already common in the Zoo at the sea, at that time still "animal caves". Last for the umpteenth time with our children, because the entrance is justifiable and the children have to see what neat. The Zoo is really small compared to others, but on a sunny day you can spend certainly 2 h here. Right, that there is also a quite modern playground, so the children can romp again properly.

  • My visit was very excited: not too big, not too small. Polar bears, seals, Pinguine...alles very maritime. Anyone looking for a nice change of pace for two hours, is right here. Longer is always... Optimal for children. But adults also have to chuckle when one observes the seals under water.

  • 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.
