Erlebnis Zoo Hannover, Hannover

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.

  • 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.
