Dortmund Zoo, Dortmund
(3/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • It's always nice to spend the day here. Just a pity that that orphaned predator House is. The Red Pandas are absolutely cute. Our favorites are here but at the Zoo the giraffes and the sea lions/seals. We always like to come here and we don't even have children. Here we will ourselves back to kids :)

  • Zoo, a great facility, is located in a forest park and easily accessible by the Auto.Sehr green, beautiful lakes, where to go and to photograph. Everywhere very clean, the animals kept. We liked the seals, then go see.

  • The location is beautiful. But few animals and poorly signaled. But the Park is wonderful. Fantastic landscape.
