Erlebnis Zoo Hannover first opened its doors in 1865, making this one of Germany's oldest zoological parks. As you wander the 22 hectares (54.3 acres) of exhibits and habitats, you'll notice lush, realistic enclosures. The zoo prides itself on having few visible barriers between visitors and its 3,500 animals. You can walk through seven regions of the world, including the Zambezi, Yukon Bay, the Outback, and Gorilla Mountain. Follow the 5 km (3.1 mi) explorer path for the recommended route through the zoo. Ask about a guided tour if you'd like to learn more about the zoo's residents and its conservation efforts. Children will also enjoy the petting zoo and several playgrounds. Our Hannover journey tool makes visiting Erlebnis Zoo Hannover and other Hannover attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Loved this zoo, favourite animals, penguins, elephants and gorillas . Good setting & clean. Plenty of places to eat & drink. Downside was with the wasps, they were everywhere, even inside of the...

  • This is such a lovely zoo. So creative and artistic and relaxing. I highly recommend it. Each area was so well designed.

  • Nice zoo and for most of the part, the animals seemed to have it okay under the given conditions, except one of the chimpanzees and especially the leopard who walked around in circles in its cage...

  • Beautiful zoo. Very natural animals, fit, well-groomed. Prices in the upper range with 70 euros for 3 people. The employees were consistently friendly. Parking was a 5 minute walk away. The playground is an absolute must for the children, so make sure you plan enough time! And in any case, DO NOT leave the zoo without having an ice cream 🍦 It tastes fantastic.
  • This is a beautiful zoo! One of the best zoos I have seen so far. My favorite part of the zoo was the farm area. There is a huge jungle gym at the end of the zoo. My son had so much. I was able to spend the day here with my family and I can't wait to go back next time we are in town.
  • Please come early! Take the boat 🛶 tour & make sure to watch the seals 🦭 show! 5 hours is the least time to enjoy this place ✨❤️! Theres bathrooms all around and kids play areas all around and a lot cafes and restaurants too inside the venue itself! And there is themed areas with their local kind of animals!! I loved seeing the happy elephants 🐘❤️❤️❤️🦅🐮🐯🦊
  • This place has a theme for each part of the zoo you walk to, with various of animals.You can also take a mini train in there but you pay extra. This place also allows you to bring your pet with you (with a different ticket).Ticket prices are fair and good. To sum up this place is really good but not a 5 star experience because 5 star experience has to be really unique.
  • This zoo was such a disappointment. If you expect a serious conservational effort and educational experience, this is not the place for you. It is more of a thematic animal enclosure experience geared towards children amusement. Mini theme park for kids. They lack staff, and the animals lack proper climate controlled enclosures. They have a whole section dedicated to safari animals, and either they were hiding from the cold so you didn't see them at all, or they were huddled together shivering. It was a really sad sight; much pity for the animals. Definitely don't visit during winter. Even in summer I'd think twice.. Fortunately the staff were kind enough to issue a refund.
