The zoo and botanical garden is unique for the region and definitely worth visiting. It has a very exotic view at the lake and a variety of fauna and flora. I visited several times during different seasons and it always has something to admire. The animals have a lot of space and the organization/aesthetics gives a pleasurable experience. The gardens...

We visited the zoo today and the gardens and overall aesthetics where amazing. The monkey enclosure and rainforest area was fantastic. The only concern was the some of the larger animals so elephants , tigers , cheetahs and bears had very limited space and seemed really sad which put a big dampener on the day. A plus side was the...

We visited the zoo on a wintery weekend away to Stuttgart, despite the season the gardens were still lovely to walk through and you do get a discounted price out of season (11 euros per adult). We were however pretty shocked at the conditions some of the animals were kept in, particularly the big ones. The brown bear looked unhealthy... More

I am not really fond of seeing animals in cages but this zoo and gardens are amazing. The animals have lots of room to roam and habitats looking fitting. The gardens are simply gorgeous. A must see while visiting Stuttgart

Typical zoo that has the normal lions tigers and bears. It does have some great monkeys and polar bears. Beautiful place if you come during the spring and the flowers are blooming.

My friend and I decided to visit while we were in Stuttgart visiting the Christmas Market. It made a refreshing change of scenery from the crowded streets of the town and it was a nice walk through the park from our hotel, Arcotel Camino. It was very well laid out and had plenty of places to stop to rest or... More

Didn't enjoy this visit to the zoo. The orangutans looked miserable and seemed to be very bored. People were crowding up to the glass to see one of them in the first enclosure. The poor animal kept averting its eyes like it had really had enough of it all. The next one sat slumped on the floor in a depressed... More

The zoo is very picturesque and has a great variety of animals within. However some of the enclosures are very outdated to the extent you feel bad for the animals. The food and drinks available are very nice and reasonably priced.
