  • The Tiergarten in Nuremberg is a traditional company that has adapted effortlessly to modern requirements. The dolphin lagoon is worth every penny invested in the redesign. The Blue Salon is simply magical. But the rest of the facility also offers something for everyone: Here parents with children get their money's worth as well as seniors seeking peace. A visit is definitely worthwhile and the friendly, professional staff is an additional plus!

  • Beautifully landscaped, large-scale zoo with many modern and species-appropriate enclosures. With the dolphins, it is one of two zoos in Germany. A highlight is the Delphine Show. A few enclosures have come of age and urgently need to be renewed. The zoo is super spacious so that the crowd of people is pleasantly distributed. There are many seating and toilets. We had a lot of fun and like to come back!

  • Amazing zoo, especially beautiful now in autumn. Nice children playground. You can by food and feed animals there.
  • Amazing place. But be careful with your camera while going into the butterfly zone because it will fog the lens for at least 5 - 7 min. Don't try to change the lens inside the butterfly zone it will fog up the sensor too.
