Home to a diverse range of animals and birds, Heidelberg Zoo has been one of the city's institutions since 1933. Some of the animals you can see at this small zoo include the Syrian brown bear, elephants, Sumatran tigers, Asiatic lions, red kangaroos, and various species of apes. A number of bird installations feature flamingos, Mandarin ducks, and Kea parrots. Choose from several daily feedings you can watch. At noon every day, the zookeepers present some of the smaller animals, such as the African hedgehog, ball armadillos, insects, and snakes at the Little Monkey House.

  • The Zoo in Heidelberg has many different animal species. You really do best to improve things, to increase Habitat and nicer to make the zoo visitors. There's great playgrounds, an adjacent parking garage, a goat str Acorn Zoo... The lion habitat is quite small, but there's a bigger and better already in planning. I'd always like to go and an annual ticket.

  • Some years ago, the Zoo was very run down. But much rants stood: many new, larger and greener enclosures (next probably the predator building on it, raccoons, or Stachescheine were allowed to move already). In addition an attractive entrance area. Good explanations, clear structure and great playgrounds of the hit children's Noah's Ark, but also a somewhat hidden 2 playground with large slide. Also the park is clean, appealing, and there is also a private parking garage (or bus or bicycle up directly outside the door). Tip: early morning doer in poor weather go down, if it is then all blank. On the 24.12 before Christmas Eve, the Zoo Director reads stories for children and anschließned all animals are fed. otherwise the feedings and animal clinics made super. It gitb also a combination ticket with zoos in karlsruhe and landau-not bad either!

  • On a voyage from a short trip in the direction of home, we made a stop at the Zoo Heidelberg. Access is easy, even if the signs in the city could be better. Parking is directly in the parking lot in front of the entrance, because the Zoo near a huge hospital complex is located. The Zoo is not too big, yet you can easily become lost. The guidance is somewhat confusing and you may miss the one or other enclosure easy times. Overall, it's a very nice facility. It makes a neat and clean impression. Unfortunately, not all the animals were due to the autumn weather. Since it was the first weekend in advent, there was even a small Christmas market and a discounted entrance fee of only 5,--euro per adult in the Zoo. This is top. We were pleased with our visit and would the Zoo if we are once again in Heidelberg, like to revisit.
