Erlebnis Zoo Hannover first opened its doors in 1865, making this one of Germany's oldest zoological parks. As you wander the 22 hectares (54.3 acres) of exhibits and habitats, you'll notice lush, realistic enclosures. The zoo prides itself on having few visible barriers between visitors and its 3,500 animals. You can walk through seven regions of the world, including the Zambezi, Yukon Bay, the Outback, and Gorilla Mountain. Follow the 5 km (3.1 mi) explorer path for the recommended route through the zoo. Ask about a guided tour if you'd like to learn more about the zoo's residents and its conservation efforts. Children will also enjoy the petting zoo and several playgrounds. Our Hannover journey tool makes visiting Erlebnis Zoo Hannover and other Hannover attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Erlebnis Zoo Hannover Reviews
Mein Patenkind und ich nutzten seinen freien Tag im Kindergarten und verbrachten den Tag im Zoo! Immer wieder aufs neue ein Highlight! more »My godchild and I used his day off at the nursery and spent the day at the zoo! Again and again a highlight!
There is a route to follow then you will see everything, lions, giraffes, polarbears etc. There are different themes eg. India, where you see animals typical of India. Entrance fee is a bit expensive. more »
I enjoyed another awesome visit today, despite the weather- downpour to and from the zoo. The sea lion show was spectacular with an a bonus of a bald eagle flying across the water. There's a lot of construction projects at the entrance and throughout the park. So be aware. The lunch at the Yukon section was tasty. It was fun watching the fillets be prepared then fried right in front of me. Polar bears were active but the big cats were not. Lots and lots of families out and about. A great time.
Outstanding zoo, very quiet in the winter. Each area is very well themed and the enclosures look capacious. The food is well priced and the outlets are well themed too.
