Imagine you are in the nature to see exotic animals and not in an artificial landscape - then you are in Nuremberg Zoo! All of the fenced-in areas are built to fit in the existing terrain. The "house" of lions, pumas and similar animals is...More

We spent a lot longer here than we'd expected. The zoo is built on the side of a hill, and set in woodland. Highlights are gorillas, snow leopard, fishing cat and underwater viewing areas for penguins, seals and manatees. There are also some habitat areas....More

Great zoo. It was very quiet due to the time of year, made it feel like we had our own private zoo. Very well organised with good facilities. The dolphin show was fantastic. The animals are cared about and well looked after. Would definitely recommend.
