The zoo is not too big and you need about 1,5 to 2 hours to visit it when you take your time to watch the animals. These are sometimes hard to spot, like the racoon that likes to hide. My favourite are the sea lions....More

It's not mindblowing or big, but it's a nice walk and was very entertained. Considering there's not much to do in Bremerhaven, this is a good way to spend a couple of hours at port. I think it's well preserved and has very friendly attention...More

Well organized, wonderfully themed zoo. Fun for adults and kids - even the ones that hate long walks. The parking lot is not large enough to fit all the visitors, but we managed to par on a lot across the canal, next to a shopping...More

Zoo am Meer is located on the bank of river Weser and contains mostly northern animals. The zoo is relatively small(took about 1.5 hour to visit) but extremely cute, with concrete(look stone like stone) premises instead of cages. Animals look healthy and well-carried. A lot...More

This is a very small maritime zoo, situated next to the sea. For a family with small children this zoo is perfect. If you have older kids and seen a few zoos before, this attraction could be left out of your travel plan. The compact...More

Disappointed in the condition of the animals here. All of the aquatic pools were so filled with algae you could not see through the glass. There was one poor polar bear pacing back and forth endlessly, made me so sad. Not a very large selection...More

Small zoo next to the water. Very cheap for what you get. This is the first zoo we've done where you get really close to the animals.

The zoo has an adequate size and a variety of animals. Big and small, warm- and cold blooded, fish, birds, just everything. The general theme seems to be "animals of the far north and south", so don't expect lions and elephants but rather polar bears...More

This is a very nice zoo, not to be missed when you visit Bremenhaven. My husband, our little daughter and I spent there great three hours seeing animals of the world (mostly sea animals) in a well kept habitat for the animals. This is not...More

It's a small zoo, so I'd say about two hours, tops, and you'll see everything at a leisurely pace. There's a nice restaurant in the zoo where you can warm up, especially at this chilly time of year. Enjoy!
