  • This is an amazing zoo. We visited in February. We love how big the zoo was with plenty of room for the animals to move around and also plenty of room for guests to explore. There is a really wide ran...  more »

  • Many wonderful animals in really nice and natural park. You don't see solid cages, so you can focus on animals. Dolphins are great!! The only minus is, that all descriptions and explanations are in Ge...  more »

  • A perfect place to spend a day with your family. Entrance is €31.50 for a family of four (15 April 2017) and we had the best time you could think off. The absolute highlight of this zoo is their "Dolphine Lagoon", which is very unique for Germany, as only the Zoo in Duisburg has Dolphins on show as well. We attended the show and were very pleased that it wasn't one of those bombastic theatric shows, but a show that explained about the dolphins and how they are kept and trained and we liked it very much because of it. The other animals in the Zoo are wonderfully kept and we felt that this was a type of zoo where animals feel happy. Not that we could really tell, but it definitely looked like the type of place that cares about their animals. Food and Drink was reasonably priced, but if you want to bring our own, nobody will stop you from bringing it into the park. There are lovely walks and views within Tiergarten and we strongly recommend this as a day out to anyone, who likes a good Zoo.
  • Family oriented, pet-able animals throughout different sections of the zoo. A really cool place for a second date and not expensive at all.
  • The nűrnberger zoo has a wide variety of animals ranging from krokediles to polar bears. It's main attraction though is its dolphin show. The performance consists of a presentation about the dolphins habitat and a variety of tricks like back flips and ball fetching and throwing. The zoo also has a gift shop, three restaurants and at least one play ground. In conclusion I would visit the zoo on a sunny day.
  • Really huge, has a lot of different Animals, beautiful walk-ways, restaurants and the most important in the summer, ice cream :) At arrival you will receive a map which shows all the locations of the animals. Absolutely recommended to visit, expect to spend a whole day :)
  • Lots of different kinds of animals living in seemingly good conditions with lots of space. It was so empty the day we visited it felt like having the whole place to ourselves. Best zoo experience I've had.
