  • Simply a wonderful way with children to play and to be amazed. If possible outside of weekends and go and each plan a whole day for Zoo and Gondwanahalle. Also like more three... less is known. You can rent Oh and baby strollers is as a bulwark at the entrance. Helps if the small by the many Marvel managed are.. :)

  • from small to large, we came from the marvel not more out... class, such as in the TV. only the food corner might offer less fast food. can imagine that also restaurant visit in the evening without admission class would be.

  • Intelligent, species-appropriate and innovative concepts characterize the Entwicklunskonzept of this Zoo: looking to the future. I'm a full fan of this concept and for years an enthusiastic annual card holder: A Zoo of the future, which serves the needs of the animals, visitors and of conservation. In other words: A concept, how it should be & satisfies all sides, almost squaring de circle... the works! Way to go!
