  • Very nice spacious but not too large Zoo. Maybe a change of pace to the Heidelberg's old town.

  • Very nice Zoo. Have an annual pass is always something else. Nice keepers and the animals are nice too.

  • The Zoo is very clean and relatively spacious. I was there on the day of the open door and missed it, that there was no particularly outstanding attractions.
