  • Let me start by saying that the zoos where the animals can provide the right comfort, I really like. Well what can I say, the Nuremberg zoo has nothing to envy to any place like it in the world: the animals have large spaces, appear healthy and well fed and seem almost in their natural habitat. The zoo is large and there are various species of animals housed: on the day of my visit, the polar bear has decided spontaneously to give show playing with a float ball, it was great. I would highly recommend the visit not only to families with children, but also to people like me who has a love for animals.

  • The zoo can be easily reached by tram 5 passing in front of the station. Is a structure that are strongly regreted, paying attention to the needs of children. Nice!

  • Zoo clean, well-groomed, big. It is located straight in the forest with centuries-old trees, that even the hottest summer day it is nice! Big beautiful animals enclosures, there is a playground, a café. Among the peculiarities of the US struck manatees, there's nowhere they haven't met. And the little monkey, right at the entrance, leaving his house on a rope to jump straight meridionalis, without fencing:) Voobshchem boldly recommend select the Park all day, you won't regret it!

  • 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.

Where to stay in Nuremberg

The Altstadt and the Egidienviertel districts, the city's historical sections, provide an array of guesthouses and hotels. An alternative is the Gostenhof area, a suburban region with a selection of tourist sites. If you stay in Gostenhof, however, you need to take public transportation to the city center. For local flair, consider staying in the Knoblauchsland district near the Hauptmarkt. Avoid the Südstadt district near the train station, which is mainly residential and doesn't offer many entertainment options or access to sites.
