I love animals and zoos, but i visited Zoo am Meer mainly to watch a polar bear. I know I would not find it anywhere else. So I did and it was magnificent. Got a distant view but it was totally worth it. The zoo...More

The zoo is very small particularly for the animals themselves. For example the 3 pumas we saw are enclosed in a really tiny place. Chimpanzees didn't look very happy either and the polar bears were struggling a bit with the heat. The nice things though...More

It was decent zoo. Not the best but, certainly not the worst. Since Bremerhaven is on the North Sea. They have mostly cold-weather animal. If you love seal and penguins this is your place. The most disappointing area was the zoo's aquarium. It is small...More

Thoroughly enjoyed this zoo where we could see the animals you don’t normally get to see at zoos all over the world. Though I am not a perpetrator of zoos I feel the kids enjoyed every minute spent at the zoo. The polar bear is...More

Nice combination zoo with aquarium. A lot of aquatic animals that can also be observed underwater. A good place to see what lives in the North Sea.

A little bit disappointed as it’s quite small here.you can walk around in about an hour.More suited for children as there is a large playground on location.Entrance fee is 9€ which isn’t that high.

It's a small zoo, so I'd say about two hours, tops, and you'll see everything at a leisurely pace. There's a nice restaurant in the zoo where you can warm up, especially at this chilly time of year. Enjoy!
