Owner description: 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. Children will love the Kinderzoo, where they can pet animals and discover a lot more...

Definitely a must-visit. A beautiful, well-kept zoo located in a forest just outside Nürnberg. The animals seem well treated, and you get really close to them. The enclosures blend into the surrounding forest, at times leaving you to wonder if there is any separation between you and the animals at all. You can spend days wandering around this place, so plan to stay a while! Take note of the animal feeding times and dolphin shows; you'll want to catch those.

In a large group we were able to have an escorted private tour of the zoo and then dinner was in the restaurant with a terrific dinner show that was funny and entertaining.
Highly recommend this 100 year old zoo - 75 years in this location.

This zoo is fantastic! It has lots of facilities and playgrounds for the kids. The animals are well treated and the whole zoo is without a doubt greatly organized. My wife and I along with some friends have spent an outstanding memorable Saturday afternoon there and helped us to forget (even for a while) our routine lives.

This is a great zoo: not too big, and very well-laid-out. It's just the right size for kids: they can see lots of animals in really good environments, without getting tired out. We love this place! And they have snow leopards!
