This was probably the highlight of being in the city. Such a huge variety of animals to see spread across a huge piece of land and not all on top of each other. Each enclosure looked well maintained and had a board with the name,...More

Its very good and intresting place for children with their parents. But for couples, if you have another choice go ahead. Everything was clean and animals were healthy i think. Morning time is better than afternoon because most of them are sleeping in their cage.

This was a great choice for a day out. Very reasonably priced entry, easy to find your way around and a big variety of animals. Lovely to see a baby camel! Definitely worth a visit.

With my wife shopping in Dortmund, I needed to escape for a few hours and the zoo was the perfect answer. Great to have a walk around the beautifully keep grounds and see all the animals, with a heavy emphasis on South American species. Camen...More

A beautiful zoo!! Although I think that the entrance fee was a little bit expensive! 8 euros per person. You need enough time to see everything in the zoo..

A visit to the Dortmund Zoo is worthwhile. There is a variety of interesting animals to see. Giant otters and tapirs, among others, can be admired here. The zoo is a suitable place for a walk. The signposts are great. The paths are well laid...More
