We stood there almost the whole day, although initially it was not our plan. Kids were impressed and it was difficult to motivate them to leave Wilhelma. This is a place they want to revisit in a near future.

Zoo is a little old fashioned with regards to the concrete style enclosures. Animals all looked in excellent condition. Enjoyed walking around.

This is a large zoo with much to see. Beautiful greenhouse and great selection of animals. The food was better than expected. There are lots of play areas for the kids.

If you spend 4 - 5 - 6 hours there will be not enough time to enjoy everything. From tiny bugs and spiders and fish and birds to elephants and bears and gorillas tou will find many of nature's wonders. And a nice restaurant!

Actually, this is a very nice zoo. It is located near the city center, very easy to reach via U-ban. There is a large park to walk around. The animal species are very interesting and the infrastructure seems good.

Definitely worth seeing! Take your time and go through the entire park. The separate locations will make you feel as if you actually make a trip around the globe. I'm guessing it will beautiful in the spring with all the flowers and trees blooming. Worth...More

Do not bring your dog! Dogs are strictly not allowed. That said the site is set up for dog owners, at the main entrance, there are dog kennels, which can be rented for a charge. I think this is a great service if you cannot... More
