  • The Wuppertal Zoo as our today's destination is offered with a beautiful winter day. With the S-Bahn it's an easy walk up to the entrance (always straight on) and even free for holders of the Ruhr top card entrance. The Zoo is very hilly and in this cold weather, it was often quite smooth. There, you should be traveling very careful. In itself, the Zoo is beautifully landscaped and the cages were great to marvel at. There are many different ways tunnel at the penguins, such as stone-course and a water. Generally, the Zoo earned his title "green Zoo" and it very liked. The Schwebebahn is also not far away and the Zoo ticket includes a driving ticket, which you can use to log in to the connection quite Wuppertal city centre to look at.

  • We were of course already in the Wuppertal Zoo Wuppertal and recommend continue visiting! The entry is not as expensive as in other Zoo's. We go there once in a year there and are always satisfied! A point we pull out because there are many mountains and who gets there with children and prams of hard part already.
