    The Zoo Rostock advertises with the award "Best zoo Europe" (in the category II) - really can be including anything present. But after visiting this great animal observation site I can appreciate fact that! If you have much time and you love animals, you need to go there! Many of these magnificent creatures on four legs, clad in colorful feathers, resulting in fur or tipped with sharp teeth you come really close: so am I - calm and quiet - gone through the reindeer enclosure and made the acquaintance of a unusual reindeer. The little naughty Fox showed his face through narrow window fence gaps, the cheetahs run along very relaxed on the fences, and in the free-flight Aviary for seabirds, it feels like on the sea! I was evident from the variety of animals and which is probably sentient presentation, the location of the Zoo in the middle of large shady trees and I know totally done: here I come! Thanks to Rostock!

  • Super super super! Beautiful zoo in a forest/ natural park setting. Very happy animals!
  • Well worth a visit, the Darwinuem is excellent and we are looking forward to the Polarium when it is finished. Prices are humane and the park-like grounds are wonderful.
  • All animals were well taken care of. They are fed well and kept healthy.
  • Perfect choice for a cloudy day in autumn - plan to stay there for 4 hours up to 1 day:)
  • Very nice place
