Really well laid out zoo. Lots to see. Wide variety of animals. Lots of interactivity. Lots of food options. Tip - the first few food areas you come to are generic zoo cafes with slightly overpriced food. Look out for more variety the further you...More

Visited this zoo while my husband was working. It was a holiday so it was jam packed with families and small children. If I ever visited again, I would go during the week, definitely not on a weekend or holiday - but then I don't...More

The Zoo, though fairly extensive is far too costly. Once in the zoo having paid a steep entrance fee, you find that some of the more interesting sections cost. I personally believe that some of the animals that we did see were not properly cared...More

It's the best zoo I've ever been in. It is big but very well organised and there is loads of benches and places to rest and get snack. It was full of children and families. You can buy food for animals in the shop and...More

This zoo is in a large parc with a lot of care for the landscape a giving animals a natural surrounding as much as possible. The aquarium is also great.

The attraction is represented by some wild animals walking freely in the garden. What I think was very useful and good was the teaching activity: care-takers of the zoo presented the animals to groups of children. At the end, the former asked some questions on...More

Very tourist "unfriendly"......we don't all speak German, so if this is a tourist attraction, then at least have your zoo layout and signage in English as well........it is after all the universally recognized language. We wandered around getting lost because the layout on the zoo...More

Hi - if I buy a Hamburg card for £8 will this mean my entry to the zoo is free?

The Zoo is private I do not think so considering the high pricing they have but the best would be to check directly with them
Is the zoo Stroller Friendly? Do they allow pets to come walk around? (Can I bring my 8 lb dog along?)

Hi,I would reckon the zoo is very friendly for strollers--it is Germany and they do things correctly unlike my country!. Hope you enjoy your visit--we spent around 5 hours there so leave plenty of time.
Is there anywhere near the zoo that is good for lunch? Danke

Hi, we didn't get to have anything near the zoo but I would recommend the Factory Hasselbrook.
