A breeding ground for koalas, Zoo Duisburg is one of Germany's largest zoological gardens. Fossa and Red River hogs also breed successfully in the park's recreated habitats. Although a highway divides the attraction, the park's design and the leafy trees next to the road keep the traffic noise barely perceptible. In any case, you'll be too distracted with the playful antics of the zoo's large dolphin population in the Dolphinarium. Visit the Dolphinarium between shows for free, or buy a separate ticket to enjoy the spectacle. The Equatorium, the largest section of the park, is the home to many primate species from the equatorial region. Our Duisburg trip tool makes visiting Zoo Duisburg and other Duisburg attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
Zoo Duisburg reviews
Went to the Zoo and paid full entry price only to find once I got inside that half the Zoo remains closed off to visitors. There are no signs before you enter to tell you this and then I was told by..... more »

It was my first zoo in Germany and I really liked it. It's quite big and well organized or to say well put together. Here are some of the photos for you to enjoy. I personally love the Koala bear...
A great zoo, however there is a lot of building going on at the moment. They try their best to keep the animals out of reach of the building activities - so while protecting them, you get to see only parts of what you pay for. In addition only some of the restaurants accept cards and you definitely need cash to pay for parking - something that is quite odd in our time.
