it's a must to visit if you were around Karlsruhe, it has a variety of animals which I did not see in Berlin Zoo.

Beautiful gardens with lots of room to wander. Spring and Summer are the best time to go. Loved the polar bears.

This place is very goog to wander, to see the animals and birds. But it is also good to read a book, to think, or just to be with ourselves.

Nice place to go with your kids. Would recommend to plan for 2-3h. There's a lot of animals to see. There is also a very fun "boat" ride in the zoo

Although the address in internet doesn't take you to the main entrance, follow signs to the Hbf. Lots of space for strollers and green space for the kids to run around.

A very well designed zoo which makes you feel like you are in a park. It allows us to view the animals up close. You could also take a boat ride on the lake with ducks swimming around you. Restaurants, ice cream stands, resting points...More

Located opposite the train main station , so you cannot miss it. I am very impressed by the layout and design of the zoo and how it fits in the area close to residential buildings. A place worth visiting with kids.

This is wheelchair friendly, as there are walking paths and you should be able to see the monkeys from your wheelchair. I did not take the boat ride so I would contact the zoo directly about access to the boat. Enjoy your... More

From what I remember, the park was very accessible. We saw many people with wheelchairs, strollers, twin-strollers, etc., which had access to everything we went to. As far as getting to the Zoo, we stayed at the Novotel... More
