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.

  • We spent a pleasant day in this beautifully flowered very well laid-out zoo. What we really won it is the closeness that you can have with animals. On top of that the price is very attractive accessible to everyone
