  • The park itself is pretty big and spread out so that you can spend a while in it. The enclosures are large and well described. The highlight is of course the delicacy and the show. Only drawback is that in the winter months is not much on animals to see. Many are Winterquatiere that are not accessible.

  • They arrived by bus from the central station in 20 minutes, 15 minutes on foot. Tickets are not expensive-adult around 15 euros. Children under 5 free. Large territory, crawl all 2.5 hours was not enough. There are cafes, restaurants and shops, all as expected. We very much liked dolphins, seals, penguins. Show sea lions and dolphins (feeding) really enjoyed it. Animals very much and almost can be reached at hand)) are not high fence of feeling that they are straight.

  • This zoo is such a lovely day out for all the family! The forest setting is so relaxing and amazing. It is a nice zoo where you will spend a whole day if you want to see all the animals. It also has a lovely playground for the kids to have a great play break in the middle of the animal watching. We have all enjoyed the day spent there and renting a wagon for the kids to be carried around in made it even more special for them too.
  • This is really a nice place to visit. From different species of Land animals to water animals is pretty amazing. Of course that includes the Dolphin Show. I saw a lot of endangered species was properly taking care of.
  • Very nice zoo , i think you should take your ticket for Sunday because they have alot of activities there👌🏻👌🏻
  • There are dolphins exhibitions in some hours that are perfect. Dolphins shows the skills and ability to learn. The exhibition is spoken only in German language. There is children zoo with goats, some more attraction. Over all the zoo could be even more children focused with more interactive and learning components, it is little bit old fassion.
  • its not the best zoo in germany but still nice as its in the middle of the woods. u have different playgrounds and restaurants/shops where u can have a proper meal or just a snack.

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.
