There are many exotic and cute animals, a petting zoo, a really big playground, two restaurants and some smaller kisoks. The zoo is not exacly for "free" so make sure that if you go there, you have enough... More

We've visited the Frankfurt area and family living there suggested to visit the Opel-Zoo in Kronberg to give our kids a break from the city. The park is approx 25 min outside Frankfurt, depending on the usual big traffic in the Frankfurt area. We suggest it mainly German tourist and locals rather than the international crowd. Given the big international... More

It is a great zoo that offers high interaction with the living animals since you can purchase carrots and other food to feed the animals. In terms of animal welfare I have given it too much thought since a zoo is always a compromise. Anyway considering other zoos I like this due to feeding the animals. They offer relative ok... More

This zoo is great for young kids, since it's really accessible and on their scale but still has lots of great exhibits. it's great that kids can feed some of the animals and get right up close to many others, and the pony and camel rides were also a highlight. It's pretty hilly, so make sure you've got your good... More

I enjoyed this zoo so much. Especially I was shocked in a good way that people feed animals. And of course that one of the sections (quite big one) you can visit for free. The good place to spend time with family.

The zoo has a wide range of animals and the main attraction are the giraffes and the elephants. The zoo is spread over a vast area and the view of the animals is well arranged

My wife and I love zoos and we have found that often it's a very good way to experience the culture. This zoo was no exception to that. You can feed the animals, though we did not happen to notice where you can buy items to feed them. We did notice at least one person feeding the elephants some carrots,... More
