  • Disappointed in the condition of the animals here. All of the aquatic pools were so filled with algae you could not see through the glass. There was one poor polar bear pacing back and forth endlessly...  more »

  • 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.
