Rostock Zoo reviews
The huge zoo. To see everything, plan to be there all day. Unfortunately, there is not enough information in foreign languages. It would be nice if the administration made an audio guide for the zoo..... more »
Rostock Zoo, Aug -19 Really great Zoo close to central Rostock. Mammals (well, all animals TBH) have big, well kept areas to move around at and all enclosures are spacious. Especially intressant..... more »
This is a sprawling zoo, with plenty of attractions for children and adults. The price is a bit higher (17.50€ adult on 31/08/19), however it's easy to spend a full day there. I would recommend.
The zoo itself is fabulous. Some amazing and unique displays I've not seen in other views. However the service Cafe in which we had lunch was not good. The quality of the food is what you would expect, but they got our order wrong twice, barely an apology.
