Zoo Duisburg, Duisburg

4.0
#1 of 8 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.

  • A visit to the Zoo is worth whether in good or bad weather. There is always something new available. We have therefore brought us a year card

  • We like to go to the Zoo. Currently highlight the Hippo babies baby and many goats. Tasmanian Devil Fossa & price performance is ok. Currently many construction sites. Would anything else wait until everything ready, but still it is worth

  • Super garden. Nice, surrounded by greenery, in a large Park Zoo. It's nice to it walking. We find it quite rarely seen in other zoologach animals for example. echidnas do koala bears. To bad the Dolphinarium. I recommend!

  • We really enjoyed our trip to Dusseldorf, in late September 2017. Also, we enjoyed our visit to Duisburg Zoo. We were really pleased to see how clean and the layout of this zoo was great. The animals were well taken care of and their areas were kept clean as Zoo staff should. The only thing is, the animals were so quiet and you cannot see them so up close! And there is no feeding time for audience to feed the animals. The staff was so friendly and helpful! The food was good although very expensive, especially for big families.Also, we loved the dolphin show:) !
  • Medium size zoo located on the outskirts of the town but easily accessible by local public transport. Good range of animals including bears, elephants, giraffes and gorillas. Of special interest are rare species like an Amazon river dolphin and fossa. Home to a dolphinarium with regular shows. Some enclosures and exhibits like the monkey house need updating.
  • It was great and they have a wide variety of animals. - Aquarium is also nice with decent species of fish. - Dolphin show is a big highlight and worth every penny. - 1 Lion and 2 Lionesses are there but the cages are too small for them. The area outside is also not that big. - Two Tigers next to Delphinarium are nice and healthy. - A very entertaining place for kids. My daughter had time of her life. - Bears, Monkey house are good. - Ziraffe and Elephants close to the entrance are quite good. The place is also bog enough for them. Worth every penny.
  • Very nice. Lots of animals and different things to see. Include a dolphin show. The only thing that was not too great that there was a distance between the fence and the place to watch. Its very hard to take pictures because of the fence. Then the windows were dirty. But for the rest it was nice. Hope someday u get more parrots.
  • It was a fine zoo with a lot of animals, but I feel sorry for them. They are ment to live free in the wild.
