We visited the zoo on our last day it doesn't disappoint lots of things to see and some different animals I have not seen before. You get entry to the aquarium next door which is quality not like your average aquarium with fresh and salt...More
Is a bit unfair but we compare zoos with our local Chester Zoo so they have to be good to impress. This is a lot smaller with most enclosures being smaller although there are some bigger ones such as the elephant enclosure. The positive is...More
Zoos can be quite depressing places with animals clearly looking bored in small featureless cages. Cologne has done its best to provide all the animals with large enough enclosures with plenty of things to keep them occupied, from trees, footballs, scratching posts, hiding food around...More
This is a fantastic zoo! The animals seem very well looked after and one can come astoundingly close to all the animals. Definitely recommend visiting this place if you go to cologne.... One bug bear are the wasps in August. Around this time of year...More
On a potentially rainy day, we decided to take a trip to the zoo (there is an aquarium attached too, but didn’t quite have time for this). About a 30-40 min walk from central old town, but quite near to an underground. We took a...More
Out of all animals I was impressed by pink flamingos, giraffes and monkeys.
When taking ferry boat from Bonn to Koln, they gave us free tickets and we spent two hours at the zoo photographing and walking.
This is a nice place to spend time...More
Absolutley stunning location, animals appear very well looked after and at ease in their surroundings. Easy to walk around, lots to see. We enjoyed feeding time with the sea lions, a very popular event.

Nice collection of animals and it wasn't too busy on the day we went.
Elephants, Giraffes and the Penguins were...More

I am disabled myself. However not in a wheelchair. Overal, a European - disabled - parking license with the all known wheelchair logo will suffice for a discount. If the handicap is see-able, it shouldn’t be a problem if you don’t flash the parking license.
If you mean that you have your own wheelchair, and want to take it with you into the park, then I think that it shouldn’t be a problem. IF it is a problem, they probably will hand you a different one which will be free/for a small charge and a deposit.

I would have thought so but vest to check their website. although we got discounted tickets for using the tram/train system think they were half price or something. possibly worth going on that website too?
