  • A nice surprise in the city of Frankfurt..not bery big but ok for a 2 hours visit..plus, layground, icecream with animal names, it was a lovely experience for my kid..and his parents..  more »
  • Very large zoo and pleasant to walk. He had a lot of animals and insects and reptiles. It was a small collection of reptiles, but it was enough. Personally I felt bad in two cases, the giraffe that had around the space of ropes with current something that probably hurt and the Lions seemed very tired. There was room for food if we wanted the reception to get tickets progressed very fast even though the line was huge. There is also room for souvenirs. At one point with goats you could go in and hook them up with something that really excited the kids.

  • Amazing place. Good access by taxi, metro and the tram. Star attraction is definitely the lion, the lionesses and the tigers. It is just majestic and loved seeing them walk. They have 3 giraffes, a two horned rhino and a hippo who's really shy and never comes out. Gorilla is a small one. The orangutans are smart. They'll climb up and put the hands out if they see you eating.
  • We visited the zoo on our recent visit and didn't find it up the standard as advertised. Lots of empty cages. Direction are very poor and people end up going in circles. But it's very clean even though some of the cages and surrounding could do with a good clean specially around lion cages. Over all pleasant experience.
