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...

Perhaps the zoo does not want the animals to catch a cold, most of them are not at home. There is simply not much to see here in winter! While the walk is nice, it certainly does not worth EUR13.5 to visit.

Tiergarten N, Leiter Öffentlichkeitsarbeit at Nuremberg Zoo, responded to this review

In Tiergarten Nuremberg nearly all animals are outside in wintertime. Here you can see giraffes in snow, if there is snow in Nuremberg... Our enclosures are very wide-ranging. Therefore it is sometimes difficult to find the animals. More

Well what can I say ... I was so happy after visiting this place. I have only been to a zoo in Sri Lanka and compared to that one this was like a different world not only for the people who are visiting but also for the animals. The space that they have allocated for each animal was amazing, its... More

Visited here on a rainy September day. We loved it .. they have a petting zoo with pigmy goats, a very cute red panda family. We stayed at the dolphins feeding. We really liked the weird piggies, the animals had space, they seemed happy and we really had a good impression.

Visited here on a cold November day. Hardly anyone else there. Great place to visit with good size enclosures for the animals. Lions and Tigers were fab, and were fairly active even in the cold. Polar Bear sat watching us and the sea lions gave us a display of their own doing. Easy access off the Tube and included in... More

We were here on a sunny day. The zoo is amazing, we saw the dolphins feeding and it was great. It's a great place for kids and adults as well. I liked better the ones from Wien and Prague, but this one is nice also. I strongly recommend it. The entrance is 13.5 Euros for adults.

The zoo is great and easy to reach from the center by tram no. 5. There were some really rare species that we have never seen alive - like the manatees, the red panda and the Nepalese rhinoceros. 3 times a day there are performances at the dolphin lagoon and that's why many people visit the zoo - especially during...

This delightful, comparatively small zoo, is easily accessible by tram, from the Nuremberg Central Station. Set in the pleasant "Imperial Forest", there are easy, moderate and steep walks that are clearly marked on the Guide map. Children's activities, a pleasant café / restaurant, stalls and timed events ensure a variety of activities for all age groups and families. We enjoyed... More
