  • For 35 years, the Nuremberg ZOO is excited with a wonderful location. The visit of such a plant, which is directly in a wooded area, allows a pleasant walk with the experience to see animals up close. Especially good to evaluate are the generous häge, which provide enough Habitat for the animals. It was a very large lagoon for bottlenose dolphins and sea lions from the ursrünglichen system of the Dolphinarium. The performances inspire has always been the small children, who may experience these animals in action. Earlier my children and now my grandchildren want to visit this zoo because of the lagoon. But I have a suggestion: it would be possible children swimming with bottlenose dolphins for therapeutic reasons to leave? I would imagine that would be unique in Europe and to secure by this source of income, the acquisition of elephants and hippos. The Nuremberg Zoo offers special tours under the motto "Special moments". Including an "encounter with dolphins". You can find out more information about it on the side of the Tiergarten. There is explicitly mentioned, that you can NOT swim with the dolphins! -WHY?

  • The location of the zoo, design, kind of animals ... You should see this place. Also good for a small walk. 
  • The Zoo in Nuremberg is worth in any case a visit. The beautiful, welcoming and spacious facility with many interesting animals invites not only to walk around, but also to linger and relax. For me, it's one of the most beautiful zoos of in Germany!
