  • The Heidelberg Zoo really is a beautifully landscaped Zoo. Children will enjoy their bright and the Zoo offers a lot of adults too. In addition to a variety of different animals, there is also a huge playground with a very large ship of climbing. The playground offers for very small to large children enough opportunities to play. Only the supply of food could be a bit more varied. Unfortunately, there is only the classics: French fries or sausage. The zoo itself is very green and provides a great space to the stroll and observe animals.
