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.

  • The Zoo focuses on family visits. It is certainly recommended. He is certainly not with spectacular highlights. Everything seems very solid. That should deter but not, to plan a visit especially with children.

  • You can tell that it is an old zoo. A beautiful zoo and perfect for children. Only drawbacks are the kiosks and the old enclosure. Petting Zoo was also because no staff there. But price that suits the performance. Was rarely so close to different animals. Can it only recommend.

  • Ticket prices depend on season. Despite the discount we can not overlook the defective condition of the plant. The enclosures are unloving and you get commiseration with the animals very quickly. We will visit the Zoo after the conversion again, expecting however no positive surprise.
