Sure is a zoo with all the stuff what a zoo has to offer. But I want to point out two very nice advantages. 1. The new elephant house is a beautiful place to learn more about this animals. Great is the observation deck on the first floor. 2. The zoo offers fantastic playgrounds for kids. Huge playgrounds where you... More

Zoo is very nice and open. Kind of throws you for a loop when you see some of the animals without enclosures, ie wolves. The trails paths don't have lighting so ensure you start heading out before dark, we had to use our phone flashlight to find our way to the exit. Nice big zoo, our daughter loved it. They... More

We spent over four and a half hours here and still didn't see everything on offer, the place is massive, with many wooden play parks inside and little cafes at the side serving fantastic quality snacks,food and above all their world famous beer! For smaller children there are carts available as it can be a long walk, but ours loved... More

Tierpark Hellabrunn is very large! We spent about 5 hours, including visiting some talks and a bird show. Animals seem well treated, there is a lot to see and learn about the animals. We enjoyed it a lot! Unfortunately, most information is only available in German.

The park area itself is quite nice but some of the animals are in tiny enclosures. The ladies toilets were a disgrace and the service at Tao Garden Eatery, too. And super expensive. Once was enough, will not return!

I really liked this zoo. Its a just a few mins walking from the S-bahn station and has a really nice ambience. We went late in the afternoon so a few of the animals were taking a nap. My suggestion is to go earlier in the day when the animals are awake :) The cost is 14 euros for an... More
