Barcelona Zoo, Barcelona Reviews
This zoo rates as only "average" with much better zoos to be found elsewhere in Spain, let alone in other countries. Admission price was fine and slightly cheaper if booked online. Zoo signage is not great and while there are specified time slots for elephant training, dolphin displays, penguins etc, not a lot seems to be happening at the featured times. Not sure these programmed time slots worked really. Quite a variety of animals to see so that was positive at least, otherwise fairly standard zoo experience, not great.
Second time we have visited now. First time in 2016 and then this year 2018. Some new things to see on our second trip and place was busy enough to still be able to see the animals. Place is clean. Not all staff are friendly. Queues at food stands as the staff seem to take forever to get through the customers. We experienced this twice and all we wanted was drinks. Would advise buying tickets online before you arrive as they are discounted. We paid about 30 euros online and the price would have been 44 euros on the door. There is no need to print the tickets as they can scan from your phone. Also you can buy tickets for the same day.
Nice zoo, plenty to see, lots of play areas for the children. The area with the water most spray was perfect in the middle of day when it was really hot. Seeing the peacocks out and free was really nice. Could get up close to them which was nice. The only downside is the big animal enclosures are very small.
Hi the Zoo is quite large so I would recommend at least one and half hours to walk around. There are a good selection of animals ie marine, reptiles, safari and domestic animals. Good options there is a restaurants in between and places to stop for drinks they can be pricey €3 euros for a soft drink. For children there’s plenty to do with picnic areas and the play areas. It’s been over years since my last visit the zoo is undergoing construction in some areas to update. It’s was hot in the heat so most of the animals were resting.
Didn't plan to visit the zoo. We had gone over to see the Arc we Triomf and had a little wander around the park there and stumbled across the zoo. Cost around 20 euro a person and was decent value for money. The zoo itself is actually much bigger than I expected. There is a whole host of animals and zones to go visit. A couple of good food places here too. A nice place to wander around if you want a break from the city.
