This was a great choice for a day out. Very reasonably priced entry, easy to find your way around and a big variety of animals. Lovely to see a baby camel! Definitely worth a visit.

I enjoyed visiting the Dortmund Zoo. The animal enclosures were often large, open areas. I especially liked the White Rhinos, knowing that there are few left and none in the wild anymore.
There were beautiful flamingos gathered closely together as it was a cold day, and the giraffes were close to the observation area, luckily, as I was taking a few photos.
The currywurst and pommes were tasty and the eating areas were pleasant.

I recommend a visit if you are in the area.

With my wife shopping in Dortmund, I needed to escape for a few hours and the zoo was the perfect answer. Great to have a walk around the beautifully keep grounds and see all the animals, with a heavy emphasis on South American species. Camen and Reas are just as good, if not better than crocs and emus, so come on down and see a spot of Brazil in Germany for a reasonable fee. A few nice eateries inside too.

A beautiful zoo!! Although I think that the entrance fee was a little bit expensive! 8 euros per person. You need enough time to see everything in the zoo..

Nice place to visit if you want to spend 2 to 3 hours. Entrance fee is 8 Euro per person. Major attraction is the Giant ant eater, Sea lions, giraffe, small penguins and small kangaroos and a big lizard may be Komodo dragon but not sure. Wash rooms located in three different places and good food available inside. Walkable distance from the U Bahn.

A visit to the Dortmund Zoo is worthwhile. There is a variety of interesting animals to see. Giant otters and tapirs, among others, can be admired here. The zoo is a suitable place for a walk. The signposts are great. The paths are well laid out. There is ample parking and the entrance fee is more than fair.
