Kids really enjoyed spending time in the zoo, lots of walking but still worth it. We had a wonderful time.

This zoo is nestled in between the trees but is a real gem There is plenty of information in English. It is quite hilly to walk around but this is its charm. Highlights? The penguins in the air conditioned ice bunker and some very chilled...More

The Zoo talks of itself in this way, and does have a bit of forest within. The Okavangi restaurant was one highlight for me. Others were the many benches for taking a rest, and some of the less often seen species. I liked that they...More

Have visited numerous times. Currently undergoing some upgrades, this doesn’t detract from the visit. Favourite this time was feeding the sea lions which includes a very cute baby sea lion. Excellent value, if a little hilly for those with mobility problems or small children. Recommended

Located on hill slopes, Wuppertal zoo is really beautiful and well managed. There is 100s of animals to see, and great jungle to walk up and down. Of course, when travelling with little kids, it becomes extra fun, as they are very curious of everything....More

This zoo was one of the best I've been to. There was a variety of animals, all with spacious enclosures. The zoo was located in a large area and involved a lot of walking. Entry and food were reasonably priced

We’ve been to many zoos and having read the reviews I thought Wuppertal would be better than it was. There are some good enclosures and a decent selection of animals but no more than you’d expect. It’s also hilly so be prepared for some steep...More

The "Wuppertal Zoo" is very "worth seeing" due to its topographical location and the variety of animal species and with the first Wuppertal landmark, the monorail (SCHWEBEBAHN), good to reach! Both from the city center and from the central station.

We found this zoo slightly better than the one from Cologne, probably due to its location. It feels a bit more natural than any other city zoo as you are walking uphill and downhill among large spaces. Quite many interesting species (gorillas...) and some nice...More

The zoo of Wuppertal really is a place to go, when in town. There are a lot of animals to see here, everything is well maintained and from time to time out can see the improvements and renovated habitats. Throughout the zoo you have small...More
