  • Supposedly, the Zoo in Rostock, should be the most beautiful in Europe. We have visited several zoos in Europe and the Zoo in Rostock belongs definitely to the spectacular. The Zoo is actually more a long walk through forest, Park and Botanical Garden only, that you can watch here even animals. You can pretty reasonably priced parking is just a small piece of the Zoo. Tip: Take as many routes go through the forest, most definitely a jacket. What really well liked, the enclosure are not even fenced part but only through ditches from the visitors separately, thus you can see the animals super up very close. Especially beautiful, different animals share an enclosure here. Because camels eat peacefully next to the zebras. Next to the Zoo in Rostock the Darwineum to the Zoo include, an exhibition about the history of evolution, very nice and informative made. The monkey House is generally a highlight and the monkeys have emotionally also some space. In the Zoo, there are lots of cafes, toilets and changing opportunities. Who needs a playground break underneath playground, a Viking ship, a water playground here include a Noah's Ark or you sells you the time at the dam building. Tip: If the small feet no longer want to run, can a stroller borrowing. Tip: For those who live nearby, the annual pass worth anyway. more info on my blog travelingkinder

  • Nice landscaped Zoo in Rostock. In the winter, there is however little to see. Most of the animals are in their stalls and these are usually not accessible. Little food available. This is also "beautiful". Darwinarium and orang/Gorilla facility is very nice decorated with socialization with other species.

  • The Zoo Rostock is an absolute must for us. We're coming 10 years every year again like in this zoo. He is vast, varied, never crowded, and affordable for a family with 3 children. The Darwineum is our highlight. Rarely, one can experience great apes so close.

  • A very nice Zoo. Animal fair, maintained and beautifully situated. Child-friendly. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This Zoo is worth its admission. I'm like a fifth, sixth... Once again.
