  • The Zoo has been since my first visit 26 years ago become ever more interesting. It is a biodiversity offers I've seen so else in no other Zoo animals. I am also very on the new lion (I missed this for over 12 years)

  • We had heard a lot about the Wilhelma and my wife wanted. The accessibility by car is bit tough due to current construction sites. A parking garage directly below, at least the parking made easily. Admission was itself only two adults & 2 children (winter price) 11.-EUR / p, small note that worthwhile family map. The Park is widely applied, i.e. with small children you should plan a means of transport. The restaurant we can not recommend ambience and selection are similar to a motorway service area. By the bird flu, all aviaries were empty, covered or closed. The seemingly only Tiger fresh operates, so also this enclosure empty and often resembled a game of the tour. Animals in the inner enclosure? or empty but Außengeheg or compound? Who has seen even a good Aquarium, may consider this good. We were disappointed of the design and size of the aquariums. Conclusion: Locals with annual pass here have the opportunity to get away from the noise of the city and you can spend a nice time with small children. Those looking for something special, alternative zoos or aquariums are recommended the.

  • The big Zoo. Even on a weekday, a lot of people. Cells and animal territory. Unfortunately, so many beasts, we never saw. Didn't like that too much stairs ... pram is quite difficult. So did a lot of repair work. But very pleased pavilions. Perhaps the most wonderful it with citrus rostenijami. Butterfly Pavilion with volatile foxes, simply delighted not only us, but also children. A wonderful restaurant with a huge choice of menus and delicious coffee. I advise everyone to visit.
