Visited in Feb but would like to go again but in summer as you get to see more and do more. It was still a nice day to go and explore the zoo. It took about two hours to see everything although you could spend much longer. Definitely recommended if you are going to Hannover specially with family.

The animals are so unhappy. It's sad to see them like this. It was the the first time at the zoo for me and definitely the last one.

We go to loads of Zoos. We didn't really plan on Hannover Zoo, we thought we would go to a different one that we had researched, but this was closer. You can get the metro out to the zoo, which is a quick and pleasant journey. The zoo is quite spread out, so there is much walking but wheelchairs are... More

I visited the Zoo for the first time after four years living in hannover and I wish I did it before. It is a nice place. I have only gone in summer time and you could see all the animals. The polar bear is amazing to watch sumerge in the water. I was told by friends that went in January... More

We visited the zoo as a family, three children and two adults. The entrance fee was very reasonable. There is a vast range of animals to see and the enclosures are constructed in such a way that you get great views. For example the Hippo enclosure is glass fronted so you get to see them as they lounge in the... More

This zoo is really fun! Make sure you make it in time for all their shows! They are sure cool and fun! (They are all in German but you can still have a fun time if you don't know German) Their animals seem to be having a better life than other zoos I've been to!

This isn't the place to visit during winter months, as we found out. The price is still 19.50Euro each, which is rather steep, considering how little there is to see and do. It would have been nice to be told that most parts are closed or being renovated. We visited last year in October and it was fantastic, however the... More

Visited the Zoo on 30 November which is Winter season. Opening hours are 10am - 4pm. The entry still costs €19.50 pp which is expensive considering many of the attractions and enclosures are closed or being renovated. Very few people visiting but it was very cold - even the penguins looked miserable. Only found one place open for refreshments but... More

My partner and I had a day to kill in Hannover - so we decided to visit the zoo. I wasn't really expecting much but it was probably the best zoo I have ever been to. Personal highlight was the boat ride, which takes you around part of the zoo. A really lovely way to spend an afternoon.
