Really a surprise for such a small city, but this one of the best zoos I have ever seen. Very clean, excellent presentation and large enclosures. Interesting choice of animals. The "Darwineum" (large apes and some special animals related to evolution) is world-class.
I never expected a place like Rostock to have a zoo as amazing as this one! It’s huge and there are soooo many animals to look at. My favourites are the Marabou Storks, the one-winged eagle and the monkey. The restaurants are overpriced (and the...More

Thank you very much for your great feedback!
We apologise for the building work but it is the only possibility to make it better for our animals and visitors to create a compound that is appropriate for the species.

This is no doubt one of the best medium size zoos in the world and probably THE best medium size zoo in Germany and rest of Europe.
I very big congratulations to the entire team that manages this zoo. This is rather incredible zoo.

Also i didn’t see any staff walking around the enclosures to answer...More

Thank you for your feedback to your visit. Currently, we optimize our signposting system and already have set up some signposts that navigate through the zoo and point to several stations. In addition, every visitor or visiting group gets a map of our park at...More
It was a decent amount to get in and was very quiet which is good. There wasn't a lot of animals in their enclosures though, not sure where they were. No crocodile or hippos. The new enclosure for polar bears is being built but it...More

Dear Jess W,
first thank you very much for your detailed feedback and critique.
Some of our animal enclosures seem to be empty, but we relinquish to retire or not to our animals, and because we have very green and vegetated enclosures, our animals have...More
This is a beautiful zoo. We spent a total of 6 hours here, without children and without staying too long at places. There’s enough ground to cover and things to see and do for kids, to spend a full day here if you wish.
