I always enjoy to go there with children. Children can be so enthusiastic watching the see lions swim or watch the feeding of the animals. There also some nice playgrounds for them - so it's always a pleasure to go there.

I previously visited the Karlsruhe Zoo. It was a nice warm day so the river boats were running and the animals were out. The bird aviary is amazing. Karlsruhe Zoo is a must for a full day experience.

If you want to have some relaxed time in Karlsruhe, you should spent some hours at the Zoo. Here you find a well organized zoo and a beautiful garden. Every where the Garden is cleaned up, and it even doesn't smell bad from animals !...More

Not only the zoo, zoo garden part is also so enjoyable. Boat tour is highly recomended. Want to go back to Karlsruhe just to visit the zoo and palace gardens again.

I was amazed with the size and quality of the zoo. Entrance is 11 Eur /adult. However, the grounds are very extensive and beautifully kept. There is a large park area to explore, including various flower gardens and a Japanese garden. Many cafes are dotted...More

The design of the Zoo, has a lot of fun aspects for little kids, from the designated play areas, rides( addition charge) and guided tours. The animals habitats are clean and presented in an aesthetically pleasing manner, however I have to admit, that certain of...More

This is wheelchair friendly, as there are walking paths and you should be able to see the monkeys from your wheelchair. I did not take the boat ride so I would contact the zoo directly about access to the boat. Enjoy your... More

From what I remember, the park was very accessible. We saw many people with wheelchairs, strollers, twin-strollers, etc., which had access to everything we went to. As far as getting to the Zoo, we stayed at the Novotel... More
