  • Its a place to be with kids and when you have extra time to spend then go ahead. its bit on expensive side but its worth since its very spacious and half a day is must to complete the tour of the zoo. 
  • The Darwineum is a hit. Our next relatives close and as good as it gets in a zoo. Of course, the orangutan in the wild is better off, but to see the animals in Germany, this is already a good compromise. The rest of the Zoo is also good, but just like any other Zoo. Dogs are welcome :-) But of course not in the Darwineum, which will see a probably everyone.

  • the Rostock zoo has lost for me to charm, without the elephants and polar bears are missing for me the main experiences and earlier there was also tiger, and a lot more, the successful at the zoo is the darwineum, but in my opinion that should prices in the summer and winter be changed because you can get even more to see many animals winter

  • 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.
