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.

  • Certainly not the greatest, but a clean and beautiful zoo. The Zoo is compact and visited well in 2-3 hours. Certainly a must for family excursions in Karlsruhe.

  • did not think that in such a "small" town stands as a great Zoo. Optical toll, abundant many animals and pretty well set up and so far I can rate it quite welfare.

  • The Zoo of Karlsruhe has genuge animals and a very nice garden. It is pretty full on weekends. Tip: On Sunday afternoons there is live music (classic played modern songs).
