Nuremberg Zoo Reviews & Ratings

  • On 15 August 2019 my family of 5 was located at the Kinder Zoo waiting for the train. Upon arrival it was very minimum people there. My 5 year old was so excited to ride the train. However as the time got closer to 3:30pm people arrived from every direction. Once the train staged to download/upload everyone just jumped on the train from all directions. It was totally unorganized and chaotic. Me and my wife explained to the Conductor that we were waiting there for over 20 minutes and many just rushed from different directions to get on the train and we had 3 small children that were waiting to ride. Business seems to be going well there so Nurnberg Zoo, please look to hire more staff to supervise this action and possibly create lanes to prevent this issue. I informed the Conductor of the situation and he was pretty rude and didnt seem to care at all. Two young kids even jumped on the train really quick to save a spot for their Dad and they arrived after us as well. Check the footage and fix this please, I can see a big issue developing when people are just rushing over each other and its pretty sad that adults have to get angry at a kid's zoo in front of their children! Our day was pretty great until this ridiculous experience. The zoo itself is quite impressive with the animals, scenes, and even the food.

  • Great place to take the family. The zoo is wheelchair accessible. There are many animals to see. You can easily spend the whole day here. The zoo also has shows for the some of the animals. If you have children there are several areas specifically for them throughout the zoo (i.e. playgrounds and petting zoo). Definitely worth the money and it wont break the bank going here.

  • It’s a beautiful quiet place in Nuremberg with many animals. What I liked most is that most of the animals are kept well with lots of free air to breathe. I am giving it a star less because animals like panda are suffering there in summer with heat and they look unhealthy and unhappy.

  • It was more than expected. Hidden from the busy city. Well take care zoo.

  • This is a really nice zoo, with some special species, like dolphins and manatees. The zoo is really green, just like a forest. Ideal for families. If you want to visit it, prepare for a long walk, at least 12 km, because the zoo is huge. :)

  • Does the zoo take credit cards?

    • I don't think Nuremberg Zoo accepts credit card. It would be wise to carry cash.
