The zoo is stunning and has a lot to see. The botanical garden, flowers, and trees are beautiful. The animals seem to be well taken care of and were out and about on the spring day we visited.

A zoo set in a beautiful park with old palatial buildings. Currently under renovation to make animal spaces larger. One of Germany's oldest zoos, with a home for baby chimps. Wonderful for kids.

We stood there almost the whole day, although initially it was not our plan. Kids were impressed and it was difficult to motivate them to leave Wilhelma. This is a place they want to revisit in a near future.
