  • The Zoo is really nice and above all great. In the winter months, hide but unfortunately some animals or are in their homes. These are however very small part... Nevertheless, it was a very nice walk for us and we're lost but also almost at the end. Nevertheless, the prices are pretty steep and I'm glad that we were only two of us and had not a whole family in tow.

  • Basically, it is a nice Zoo. Unfortunately, many old enclosure, but it is working diligently on it. The highlight for the kids was the ability to feed the elephants. For that alone it's worth. And overall is the price absolutely in order.

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.
