After many decades I returned to Wuppertal Zoo and was rather disappointed. When I entered the location I noticed that the Restaurant "Zoo Terrassen" is still not in operation. The building looks rather dilapidated. The music pavilion is the first building you see, when you...More

The Zoo is builded on a Hill, lot of walking but worth the Visit. Really clean and a lot Of animals. There is also a really nice restaurant. And you can get there pretty easy with the Schwebebahn from every part of town.
