  • I recommend to visit this zoo with a professional guide. But even without, it is an experience.

Admission may seem expensive first, but adequate for a privately operated Zoo and worth every penny. I'm coming back!

  • The Zoo is nicely done. The Park glorious for a nice walk. The enclosures are almost anywhere something small. It would be nice to be able to see the Tigers closer. The system is child-friendly and fun. The Aquarium has at times run free monkeys a nurse supervised. On the whole, okay. It's a little too expensive.

Where to stay in Hamburg

The most dynamic part of the city is the St. Pauli area, also known as Kiez. This is where tourists and locals brush shoulders among the many bars, shops, and sites. Jungfernsteig, or Neuer Wall, is an upmarket area with brand name shopping and luxury dining. Consider a stay in the bohemian quarters of Altona or the Sternschanze/Schanzenviertel. These areas burst with character and offer out-of-the-ordinary shopping and dining experiences at lower prices.
