Tiergarten Nuremberg is set in an extraordinary and unique landscape. By taking a walk through the large, densely wooded park the visitors discover open-air enclosures skilfully fitted into the red sandstone of the region. Watch dolphins and sea lions swim and play in the open air at the Dolphin Lagoon. Explore life at the Amazon, complete with rainfall periods, at the Manatee House. Go to the Blue Saloon with its vast panorama windows and experience the fascinating underwater world of both manatees and dolphins. Children will love the Kinderzoo, where they can pet animals and discover a lot more...

The zoo was only about 15 minutes from the center by tram, and admission was great value for the size of the zoo. The location is incredible, was amazing walking through the wood with the zoo built into it. The hills might be hard work...More

This zoo is lovely and large with a wide variety of animals including manatees, dolphins and polar bears which are unusual to see in a zoo in the UK. We visited on a very cold snowy day so the animals weren’t very active but still...More

Easy to go to with tram or bus outside the main train station. It takes you from 3 to 4 hrs to visit. A nice sea lion and dolphin show. Lots of animals to see. Well worth a visit

The zoo is nothing short of amazing! Easily accessed via the no5 team from town which stops directly outside the entrance. It is set outside the city in the woods which makes for a perfect, relaxed setting. At only €13.00 for adults it’s an absolute...More

It was more like we were walking through a park than a zoo. Some hilly walks, but you can hire a buggy for €4 if you have children that get tired. A good play area in the middle, too. Easy to get to on the...More

We visited after season, so it may be part of it, but everything seemed a little bit shabby - toilets, pavilions.. But never mind, because they have some really cool animals: dolphins and manatees - and their pavilion is awesome.

The park itself was scenic though a little hilly. The enclosures for the small animals seemed adequate. But the tigers were inside a small glass enclosure with one at a time allowed outside into a small area this I found very upsetting. The lions were...More

Dear visitor, the enclosure for tigers and lions in Nuremberg Zoo - Tiergarten Nürnberg - had been built in 1937-39. The building is heritage-protected and changements are nearly not possible. Our cats seem to be well. The lions are very old. The tigers are productive,...More

It's rather far away. No way to walk from the train station to the zoo as you would waist the whole morning on the way. The best thing to do is to take tram number 5, whose final stop is right in front of the zoo entrance... More
