  • We were in moderate weather in the Zoo, which was so poorly attended. So we had plenty of space. It comes very close to the animals. Often no fences, but ditches as a boundary. Very pleasant.

  • There are many animal parks, Zoological gardens, but its breadth in the Barnstorfer draws the Rostock Zoo forest out and the highlight - the Darwineum. This is a must for anyone who has children in school age, by me from even preschoolers. And even many things from their school days come again. TOP!

  • Ordinary large Zoo, where good conditions for animals. Very interfere with monitoring of animals and photographing metal lattice and grid. Adult ticket 16 euros worth of parking around the Zoo.
