Opel-Zoo, Kronberg im Taunus

#2 of 17 in Zoos & Aquariums in Hesse
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
A private zoo with resident animals that roam in relative freedom, Opel-Zoo immerses you in the African plains. Join a guided tour, or purchase an individual ticket. (Keep your ticket handy in the off chance that security asks you to present it.) The zoo provides you with snacks so you can get up close and personal with the meerkats, camels, goats, and giraffes. The area is made up of the maze of large pens cut through with pathways. Animals wander through the pens freely, so it feels as if only a fence separates you from the Serengeti. Visit the cafe terrace that looks out over the elephant area so you can watch these noble creatures at play while you enjoy a cold beer.

  • Great open zoo! The price was great for a family to visit. I enjoyed that there were open areas for the animals to roam and easy to spectate. The animals are very friendly and used to receiving food from the visitors. Bags of carrots are available for about €4.
  • Great day for all. The grill huts you can reserve are super. Very big play ground. A bit of an expense though at 14 euro per adult
  • It is a zoo, but an open air one where the animals have plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors. Still, some of the felines and monkeys were in crystal cages, that part I didn't like (I thought the animals were exlusively outdoors).
  • Huge zoo in the forest that is very well maintained. It has a very large selection of animals.
  • Small, privately held, zoo with a familiar athmosphere. Great for kids, huge petting zoo. Prices are a bit steep, but fair, considering the zoo isn't subsidized by the state or community. If you live close by, consider getting an annual ticket.
