Home to a diverse range of animals and birds, Zoo Heidelberg has been one of the city's institutions since 1933. Some of the animals you can see at this small zoo include the Syrian brown bear, elephants, Sumatran tigers, Asiatic lions, red kangaroos, and various species of apes. A number of bird installations feature flamingos, Mandarin ducks, and Kea parrots. Choose from several daily feedings you can watch.

  • The most beautiful zoo I've been to so far. It's very neat, clean, at the entrance there is a lilac tree that has such a pleasant smell, a great playground for children,many animal species,I loved the flamingo birds, they were just wonderful,a farm experience,a place where you can enyoy a meal and something to drink after hours of visiting.A place where you can spend a few hours, even half of a day, it's worth it.
  • A very beautiful and well maintained zoo with rare animals and birds species from all parts of the world. Guaranteed to satisfy kids and adults alike ! Unfortunately due to holidays,we did not witness any scheduled animals feeding on our visit! Also worth mentioning is the large playing areas for the kids!
