Went here on a trip together with other volunteers from a Dutch park. So we all looked at the park through our animal-park-loving eyes. It was very nice to see that most of the animals had lots of space, both in their inside as well as outside enclosures, as far as we could see. However, sometimes it made it more... More

I have been to many Zoo before but loved the concept of this particular zoo. I will rate this as one of the best zoo of Germany. Don't miss the Alaska ice adventure as well as the boat ride inside the zoo..

It's great to spend a nice day outdoors. Divided in 3 different sectors, easy to follow route won't let you miss anything. It's clean and well organised. What made me even happier is that the animals have a lot of space for themselves.

Everything is spotless, really clean. Also nice for younger kids, they can play in the indoor playground. Only drawback is, that you get you drinks in a "pfand" glass. So you have to queue twice!! (It cost me 2x 10 minutes to get the glasses back, really stupid and unnecessary) Therefore 4 stars, otherwise certainly 5 stars.

The ZOOM Erlebniswelt is indeed a nice and modern zoo, which you can visit with your children and stay there for several hours. Unfortunately, we chose the wrong day for the visit, Monday after Christmas, when the zoological park is apparently run by a reduced and mainly temporary staff. It started with buying the tickets. We arrived ten minutes after... More

We bought Evening tickets that is valid only from 5 pm to 7 pm thinking that 2 hours will be enough to see this Zoo. But, our guess was wrong. So, I recommend you guys if you are visiting this zoo, at least buy a day ticket and enjoy for whole day. It's a Zoo, but it is managed in... More

Had a great day out here, it was very hot on the day we visited, so some of the enclosures were very smelly. Out of the 3 sections (Alaska, Africa and Asia) my favourite was Alaska and seeing the Bears play with each other. My least favourite section was Asia as it didn't seem like too many animals could be... More
