Wonderful place to visit especially during "Hamburg's Schietwetter". It was a little too crowded for my taste due to the weather. Pack lightly, because there was a huge line at the wardrobe waiting for a key. Inside, the kinds are swarming like the locusts :) Be patient and it's all worth it. The descending spiral construction ends with an about... More

It was so cold. Good luck for us and the animals there are lots of houses to visit the animals inside. I felt really close to the animals, some love to get in contact with you. You can watch the sea cows diving because there are huge glass fronts under the water. They seemed to love to watch us as... More

As zoos go this is a very good one. I initially went just to see the ornate gates which are now located within the grounds of the zoo. But the zoo did not dissapoint and the animals seemed happy enough. A little off the beaten track mind you.

This is a fantastic zoo and the animals were amazing. Would definitely come again if I came back to Hamburg. Got €2 off with are HVV transport card so was €18 each for the tierpark, there is also an aquarium but we didn't go in that. Some animals however were not out, think to cold weather, but there were plenty... More

I really enjoyed Hamburg Zoo, decent variety of animals, easy to navigate and helpful and informative staff. Only cost 20E to enter the Zoo, so reasonably priced as well

Certainly one of the best zoos and aquariums we have visited. We all loved the quirky parts of the Tropenaquarium - so much more than just 'fishtanks' - some are real pieces of art. Also loved how approachable everywhere in the zoo was. We started with feeding applies to the elephants and then spent a few more hours meandering through... More

Went on a cold January morning and was surprised how big the site was. The price is reasonable €30 each to see it all or €15 for aquarium or for the animals so you can take your pick. The animals had big enclosures and you could view them on multiple levels. Food could be purchased at the shop if you... More
