Zoo Duisburg, Duisburg
(3.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Zoo Duisburg and many more Duisburg attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Duisburg itinerary builder.

  • We liked it all! Perfectly walked, surprised small cars instead of wheelchairs for children!

  • We were several families with children aged 5 years. The Zoo is nicely designed, the plants were largely already upgraded. There are beautiful playgrounds for the little ones. The dolphin show is interesting and nicely made.

  • Beautiful complex with interesting animals and plants. The Dolphinarium is alone worth already visiting. Where did children have the opportunity to see these animals so close. Even if you aren't neccessarily well need to find about the dolphin show my grandchildren were thrilled.

  • We spent more than three hours here - there is plenty to see so at the end you find the price (15€ pp) almost reasonable. At some point we also found the compounds were too small, especially for the big animals. The show with the dolphins was spectacular as it is one of the lasts ones you can see in Germany. There's still a petition going on to close it.
  • The zoo is really good, lots to do and a huge park at the top of the hill, Don't buy food there as its expensive - especially the drinks at 3 Euro for a cheap bottle of something to drink, not worth it.
  • Nice zoo with enough space to make walks and picknicks. We came here especially to see the Koalas. You can only see them in this zoo in the east Netherlands/West Germany region :)
  • I can recommend this Zoo for people who like animals and would like to spent time with family around nature and animals. Really good place to discover small wild world in Duisburg.
  • Great zoo, if you speak German you will of course benefit the most but attractions such as the Dolphin show are well worth the time. Good value and good quality food options but picnics are not a problem either.
