  • We are a Zoo Hooper of kind of, is where we also come and there's a Zoo this is also visited. The Zoo in Nuremberg has delighted us initially. Very nice unit with large enclosures. At least we did until we came to the Primate House. Clearly, it is in the winter cold and also the gorillas prefer to sit in a warm but 5 (5) large animals on an area of approximately 25-30 m2 that is not! The same with the big cats. The enclosures are definitely too small. Otherwise a featured Zoo also or just through the landscape in which it is located. For people with disabilities but hard-to-handle (very hilly with strong climbs)

  • I can guarantee the place for good study of animal kingdom. Because there are so variety species. And then they organised in the zone and easy to explore entire park. 
  • Embedded in the landscape of the Schmausenbucks, a slightly higher Hill, with former oozed, in which numerous enclosures were placed, the Zoo with 60 HA is widely but also mountainous. Highlights include the Dolphin Lagoon (only in the summer performances of animals, the Aqua Park with seals, polar bears, otters and penguins.) This includes the predator systems and the rhino enclosure. Almost forgot the Manatihaus and and and. Important for enthusiasts: there's almost nowhere fences and grids.
