It's a very big and interesting zoo. My favourite part was the Aquarium and the Amazon House. However, the gorilla space made me feel sad about them because it was all made of concrete and wood, no resemblance to their natural habitat! And the only division between us humans and them was a glass, which made the gorillas feel too... More

Wilhelma is an "old" Zoo, i.e. does already exist for a long time. But it has a very modern concept. Actually it is a combination of a huge park, a botanical garden and a zoo with a huge variety of animals and plants. As an example: in summertime you enter the Wilhelma through a wintergarden with lots of exotic plants.... More

The zoo and botanical garden is unique for the region and definitely worth visiting. It has a very exotic view at the lake and a variety of fauna and flora. I visited several times during different seasons and it always has something to admire. The animals have a lot of space and the organization/aesthetics gives a pleasurable experience. The gardens...

We visited the zoo today and the gardens and overall aesthetics where amazing. The monkey enclosure and rainforest area was fantastic. The only concern was the some of the larger animals so elephants , tigers , cheetahs and bears had very limited space and seemed really sad which put a big dampener on the day. A plus side was the...

We visited the zoo on a wintery weekend away to Stuttgart, despite the season the gardens were still lovely to walk through and you do get a discounted price out of season (11 euros per adult). We were however pretty shocked at the conditions some of the animals were kept in, particularly the big ones. The brown bear looked unhealthy... More

I am not really fond of seeing animals in cages but this zoo and gardens are amazing. The animals have lots of room to roam and habitats looking fitting. The gardens are simply gorgeous. A must see while visiting Stuttgart

Typical zoo that has the normal lions tigers and bears. It does have some great monkeys and polar bears. Beautiful place if you come during the spring and the flowers are blooming.
