4.2
#1 of 104 in Outdoors in Lower Saxony
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.

  • A great place for kids, but adults will be interesting. All animals have a large territory, no cages! There is a schedule of feeding and different show. All the animals are divided into thematic groups. Enclosures, cafes and playgrounds are decorated accordingly. In the Zoo you can spend the whole day. For children there is a Petting Zoo. Entrance €15.50 in winter. Parking fee required. The Zoo allowed with dogs!

  • Great zoo with different areas and different fun things to do like a boattrip. First thing i noticed was that dogs are allowed in the zoo!  more »
  • We have two small children and an annual pass and come here ever again. When my husband and I had no children we came also like to here. A great place with an insanely large variety is easy
