Tiergarten Nuremberg is set in an extraordinary and unique landscape. By taking a walk through the large, densely wooded park the visitors discover open-air enclosures skilfully fitted into the red sandstone of the region. Watch dolphins and sea lions swim and play in the open air at the Dolphin Lagoon. Explore life at the Amazon, complete with rainfall periods, at the Manatee House. Go to the Blue Saloon with its vast panorama windows and experience the fascinating underwater world of both manatees and dolphins.

Easy to go to with tram or bus outside the main train station. It takes you from 3 to 4 hrs to visit. A nice sea lion and dolphin show. Lots of animals to see. Well worth a visit

It's rather far away. No way to walk from the train station to the zoo as you would waist the whole morning on the way. The best thing to do is to take tram number 5, whose final stop is right in front of the zoo entrance... More
