We visited Wilhelma while on holiday in Stuttgart over the Christmas period. Although there are a fair amount of indoor animal exhibits there wasn’t a lot outdoors, understandably. Would be nice to visit during the summer months.

I am in love with that place. It’s very clean, old buidings are making amazing atmosphere, the animals looks happy and healthy. We were there in the morning, so it was not crowded. Food courts are really nice designed and food is good.

We have been visited Wilhema every spring since we moved to Stuttgart! Spring time is the best because you can see most baby animals. The zoo is very big and it took us a whole day (10am-3:30pm) to walk through the zoo. The animals exhibitions...More
