  • Great time at the zoo, at least three hours entertainment. Two minutes walk from the metro. You have to pay for toilets.  more »
  • We were really surprised at how much we enjoyed our visit. We were able to get close to so many animals. The walruses and elephants were an absolute highlight. We got there at opening time and it was ...  more »
  • This zoo is one of the better ones we have been. Animals seemed to be ok within their confinement. Of course no one liked to be in the cage, but there might be some benefits in keeping them from extin...  more »

  • A wonderful zoo in Hamburg, it costs around €20 per adult and around €15 for kids over 4yrs old. The zoo contains loads of animals from elephants to lions and everything in between. It's the first zoo of its kind not to use cages but rather low barriers with the animals separated by water or lower ground. They also have the option to pay extra for karts with wheels that you can use to carry/pull kids.
  • Went there for the first time in 20 years yesterday. Born and raised in Hamburg but never took the time to visit Hagenbeck since I moved away. Was amazed at the care and love that went into this place. It was always nice (in my childhood memories) but now as a Biologist I can appreciate the place in different ways. Nicely kept, clean, friendly atmosphere. Plenty and varied animals with pretty enclosures. Zoos remain controversial for many but the immense value of public outreach for wildlife conservation is undeniable - provided it is done right. This zoo is a prime example of it being done right. Highly recommended. We spent 8 hours there, included the aquarium/tropics house (which is downright fantastic).
  • I had a really enjoyable afternoon here at the weekend. I'd forgotten how fun zoos are, and took great delight in being able to feed the elephants apples, carrots, money - which they pass to their keepers, etc! One of the best zoos EVER!! This is our annual tradition in Hamburg, and we would not continue if the zoo wasn't so spectacular!
  • Really good. We visited the Aquarium only but still saw monkeys and birds and crocodiles and many snakes and frogs. The amazing features is the giant aquarium with sting rays and sharks and lots of places on the stage to sit and enjoy
  • Very good ZOO. Good size for kids. Not too much walking. Some free range animals, that can meet here and there. Some food places inside as well. Nobody takes card inside, so be prepared with cash. Good enough parking outside. A bit costly I feel. In general I recommend.
