Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Witness hundreds of animals in uncaged environments at Munich's Tierpark Hellabrunn. The world's first geo-zoo, this attraction features open-concept displays. The animals are organized by geographical origin instead of species. You can visit the Jungle House to see dozens of chimpanzees, gorillas, and alligators. You also might wander through the walk-through aviary or elephant house. Kids love visiting the Touch Paddock petting zoo. Check the website ahead of time for a complete list of feeding times and special animal-handling shows.

  • the bird-garden was cool where you can "walk among the birds" thanks to a huge net that keeps them from flying away. the goat paddock was also nice for the kids (and me..) to go pet the animals. felt ...  more »
  • Nothing special about the zoo that I can recall. It is a good place to go with kids. easy walk from the metro. my family actually had more fun at the river park next to the zoo.  more »

  • Great attraction with lots to see! Huge variety of animals from many continents! When I went there were a few baby animals, which was a huge pro, but quite a few places were under construction, which was a bit of a let down
  • Great zoo. I went early in the morning and the crowds were not too bad. One tip is to bring cash. The ticket agent at the zoo said they cannot accept any cards except German bank cards. Good thing I had Euro on me.
  • Huge variety, map outlines a path to take to view all the animals which is helpful. A few café/restaurants/beer gardens sprinkled throughout. Noticed that even for a zoo, it was on the smellier side (making some of the food locations less desirable than others)
  • It's the Munich's zoo. Great for families with kids. On weekends and holidays with good weather it's crazy full. But the animals seems to have it good there and worth a visit (or two).
  • Munich zoo is a great place. Not only are the animals very interesting (especially the apes) but all infratstructures are good. Paradise for children!
