Great zoo with well placed and themed regional areas that show the animals in an environment similar to their origin. It is definitely one of the best zoos I ever visited. The only downside and reason for not giving 5 stars are the high price but mostly the unfair pricing: their is only a reduced price for young adults between 19-24 but nothing for students, families or other normally reduced groups.
Nice zoo even in the winter. We were the only ones in the park at opening which made it nice. Animals look very healthy and cared after. The zoo was a bit unkempt. The Arctic area was awesome!!
Der Zoo ist bei jedem Wetter einen Besuch wert :-) Bei Sonne und Minusgraden den Eisbären zusehen, danach einen heißen Cappucino bei dem netten Team vom Eincafe " Luici Amarone"
For sure one of the best Zoo's I have every visited. I enjoyed every moment of it and will surely visit again in the future!
I've been to the San Diego Zoo, the L.A. Zoo, and the Bronx Zoo, and I enjoyed the Hannover Zoo the most. It looks more like an amusement park than a zoo, with great design like underwater polar bear viewing making unforgettable experiences. Two rides are included in admission price (Zambezi boat and summer-only toboggans). Informative feedings every half hour and amazing animal shows will make the day zip by: I was running around for five hours and didn't have time to eat.
An expensive but extremely well thought out zoo. As well as modern, regionally themed animal exhibits there are several nice eating places and many child friendly activities. Probably the best family day out in Hanover.
Excellent presentation, very nicely done spacious enclosures that give context to the animals. Favorite: Indian palace with elephants
One of the best ones we have ever visited, very organised, clean facilities and friendly staff, great day for anyone
Great zoo with a wide variety of animals. They've really put a lot of effort into the theming and scenery which makes the whole experience feel extra special. The other unique feature that I've not seen in any zoo before is how close they let you get to some of the animals - you can enter hothouses where tropical birds fly around freely, there's a boat tour which takes you up close to zebras, flamingos and many others, and you can even go into the pelican enclosure (the pelicans are surprisingly friendly).
Very beautiful zoo with a lot of space for the animals. What I like so much about the zoo are the different themes such as Yukon Bay or India. They always build new themes in the zoo and it makes a lot of fun visiting. It is a good place to go to with family. You should plan a day trip because there are a lot of options for shows and also for food which is has different offers in each area.
Best Zoo in the world!!! So lovely how the animals are being treated. Such I nice place to see! But I didn't see any water for drinking in the park, you have to buy. And that's pretty expensive!
Zoo with a lot of themes and good learning environment for kids. The only cons here are the admission price is expensive, even for a dog! The zoo should be free, especially for the kids from a low-income family. Cheaper price when you go after 16:30 (I payed 9€ on 17.04.2018 after 16:30) but the zoo closed at 18:00, not enough time to visit the whole zoo but I did a zoo-run so its okay for me.
A really nice place, best for family with little kids! You can easily spend the whole day there without ever getting out of things to see!
This is the best zoo ever. I and my two kids loved it. It is an immersive experience that is truly wonderful. Totally recommend it.
