Zoo Duisburg, Duisburg

(360+ reviews on the web)
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
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.

  • This zoo is very much out dated. The only thing that was super was the Dolfinarium. The show is very well set up. The kids loved it. The park needs a lot of maintenance.  more »
  • Certainly probably the best thing to do in the city of Duisburg, the Zoo is located about 4-5 mins away on the tram. Entry admission prices are standard as they would be for other zoo's. Some notable ...  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
