Zoo Duisburg, Duisburg

3.9
#1 of 6 in Outdoors in Duisburg
A breeding ground for koalas, Zoo Duisburg is one of Germany's largest zoological gardens. Fossa and Red River hogs also breed successfully in the park's recreated habitats. Although a highway divides the attraction, the park's design and the leafy trees next to the road keep the traffic noise barely perceptible. In any case, you'll be too distracted with the playful antics of the zoo's large dolphin population in the Dolphinarium. Visit the Dolphinarium between shows for free, or buy a separate ticket to enjoy the spectacle. The Equatorium, the largest section of the park, is the home to many primate species from the equatorial region.

  • My kids are teens by now, but we still frequently enjoy a day in the Zoo Duisburg. The tropical aquarium is well worth the visit and of course the dolphins are my kids favorites.  more »
  • As a family we have been for the first time in this great Zoo and I can only recommend it. Sure there will be several visits with the time * in advance there be better, because the parking lot is a little walk from the Zoo. It's okay!

  • Great day out at Duisburg zoo, reasonably priced and the animals have plenty of room for the most part. Go and see the tigers.  more »

  • We spent fantastic day in Zoo Duisburg. We started with the Dolphin show and then moved around. The area is very green and nicely organized. It is also clean and very well cared. simply nice to be. Several playgrounds for kids, animal shows..we had a highlight after highlight. The area of the house animals was also a lot of fun! It is not big and easy to move around. The only negative is the highway that is located in the middle of the Zoo and is really loud. Regarding food it is as usual Pommes and Wurst as elsewhere in Germany 😜
  • Zoo Duisburg is one of the very best zoos in Germany. There are numerous exotic animals to observe. The feedings are very entertaining and informative. The shows with dolphins and whales are the most stunning highlights. The zoo is located close to the highway and easily and quickly accessible.
  • Perfect place for a dayout with kids. Enjoyed from the beginning till the end. The 🐬Dolphin and Seal🌊 show is ultimate. Small aquarium with plenty of colorful eye-catching fishes. Well maintained and no odor. Small kids play area for relaxation. A place to spend a day usefully. Worth to spend the bucks.
  • Good place to visit. Main attraction is dolphins show.
  • Nice zoo but they don't take cards when paying for entrance and the staff on the entrance were very grumpy
