Dortmund Zoo, Dortmund

(3/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
With 1,840 animals representing 265 species--including the largest population of giant otters in the world--Dortmund Zoo offers 28 hectares (69 acres) for the creatures to roam. Although the animals in this green parkland are from all around the world, the zoo focuses on preserving South American species, including the giant anteater, tamanduas, and South American giant otter. Main areas of interest include the Amazon Building, which copies the natural diversification of the Amazon's tropical forests, and the Otter House.

  • Had a great day here,family will love it.Was cold but sunny and all well laid out around the park. Lots to see and of course sausages !!! Ian Edinburgh 
  • Especially with children, the Zoo all year round offers the ideal destination! Unfortunately, still the right food is missing at the moment!

  • A zoo that is well maintained, with a huge number of different animal species to discover. Possibility of nourriire with the seed bought on the spot. Affordable live to screw to spend the whole day and ability group and family ticket. Possibility to eat his Picknick or in the point indicated on the course. To have been to a different time of the year we had preferred to go to Easter for animations, new born and the first out of certain species after iver. The House tropical and very impressive.
