4.0
#2 of 11 in Zoos & Aquariums in Baden-Wurttemberg
Opened in 1865, Zoo Karlsruhe is one of the oldest zoos in Germany and home to around 800 animals of 150 different species. Its Karlsruhe's City Garden location creates a natural oasis that mimics the animals' native environment. You will find polar bears in the replica of an Arctic tundra habitat, plus zebras, antelopes, ostriches, and giraffes in the African savannah enclosure. In the City Garden, walk through the large rose garden, as well as the Japanese Garden, which holds a Festival of Lights every odd-numbered year. In the summer, you can ride a Gondoletta boat through the park's canals and lake. Make Zoo Karlsruhe part of your personalized Karlsruhe itinerary using our Karlsruhe trip itinerary builder.

    A place to discover absolutely where you can spend the day without getting bored. The animals are many and varied and they have large living areas. If you are passing in Karlsruhe as a couple or as a family, no hesitation! Reduced rates for students on presentation of a card (even if you are not studying in Germany).
