  • I must first of all say that I am generally not a fan of zoos, because animals imprisoned in the great outdoors and do not belong. The Zoo by the sea is a very small Zoo, which has virtually no opportunities for further expansion. The artificial mountain range and the caves are nice, the Arctic fox seemed to have me some little outlet area. The polar bear enclosure was, however, surprisingly large. Also great as one could observe seals, sea lions, and Crabeater through panes of glass under water while swimming. Safe for families with children a rewarding excursion destination.

  • The Zoo am Meer is now not really big, but the entry of EUR 8.50 p.p quite affordable. Although this zoo is so small, it has a certain charm. The enclosure are all beautifully designed and a small trail leads make sense through the Park. Unfortunately, the day was very rainy, nevertheless, we had 2 beautiful hours here. Recommended if you're in Bremerhaven.

  • A beautifully landscaped, manicured Zoo. Maybe not the biggest zoo, but nevertheless worth here a visit in any case.
