Zoo Wuppertal is home to about 5,000 animals representing approximately 500 species from around the world. Once you arrive, check near the entrance for the schedule of the day's events so you can find out when the sea lions, penguins, and big cats are being fed or when the elephants and tapirs are being bathed. Make sure to visit the apes, bears, reptiles, and fish. Admire colorful tropical birds as they soar above you in the free flight aviary. Get to know the zoo and its animals better on one of the scheduled, guided tours. The zoo has an onsite shop, playground, and restaurant. Be aware that the zoo grounds are hilly.

  • We found this zoo slightly better than the one from Cologne, probably due to its location. It feels a bit more natural than any other city zoo as you are walking uphill and downhill among large spaces...  more »
  • The zoo of Wuppertal really is a place to go, when in town. There are a lot of animals to see here, everything is well maintained and from time to time out can see the improvements and renovated habit...  more »
  • The Zoo is very interesting. The enclosures are in the Valley, as well as on a mountain. The paths there are very steep. The journey can be combined with the maglev train adults €14.50 children €7.00. Unfortunately, the Zoo has already closed on Sunday at 17:00. May I come in the summer again P.s.: the young elephants have liked me the most
