This zoo, very disappointed me. Boring. There is nothing special. Expensive and the service of cashiers insulting

Very good zoo. We never expected it to be this nice. It is not the biggest of zoos, but clean and nicely laid out. Some rare animals too. Very nicely located, not far from the very center of Frankfurt.

It is small, but it is lovely! For me and my family it was easy to reach the zoo. We got the metro. It's a good walk with baby stroller. Next year I will return the visit.

I think 3 hours is enough time if you don't linger too long. I think that's about how long we spent.
