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.

Unfortunately we only got to see the polar bear being fed, because we went there late, nevertheless it was an amazing experience, the zoo stood out because it reminded me of an old western movie place, saloon like, and the lights outside was very pretty.\ The restaurant was amazing not to talk about the food, amazing, was not disappointed with...

I'm not a fan of zoos always but I know they do a lot of good work with conservation. We enjoyed the trip around the little waterway but on the whole I felt the gorilla looked really sad and bored and barged up to window and shoulder barged it and also the polar bear enclosure didn't look that bit and...

One of the best Zoos you can find in Germany. The Zoo is going a longterm transformation from a former visitor centric Zoo with bad condutions for the animals to a entertaining Zoo where animals are treated with equivalent rights. The animals live in thematic enclosures, have more Space and often are not separated but live together with other animals... More

The zoo offers a great variety of animals and puts a great deal of effort (and investment) into creating attractive environments (Yukon, Africa, India, etc.). They also have a very nice restaurant and beer garden, Meyer's Hof, that you can sometimes get to without paying the entrance fee - afternoons and evenings, as I recall. One very cool highlight there... More
