Advantages Large selection of animals
Disadvantages None for me
|Is it worth visiting?|
Cologne Zoo is a wonderful place to visit in the city for both young and old. Make sure that you leave yourself plenty of time to visit the zoo as it is a large omplex and you will need a good few hours in which to see everything.We had free entry with our Cologne cards but the normal entry price is 14 Euros for adults and 7 Euros for children. Whilst this may seem steep I would not have minded paying the entrence fee if we hadn't had our cards.
When you enter you are given a map which you will need to that you can find your way around as the huge is absolutely huge and even with the map we managed to get turned round a few times.
The range of animals on show is staggering and these are different breeds from all over the world.
Once you have wondered the main outside enclosures you can then visit the tropical enclosures and see some of the more exotic birds and animals. The snakes and spiders were expecially interesting but creepy and the exotic bird enclosures were amazing to see.
This exotic area was all interspersed with wooden walkways and some amazing fauna giving it a real tropical feel.
When we exited the zoo directly across from it there was an aquarium that was also part of the main zoo and this was equally as interesting with some smaller sharks and lots of fish, frogs and marine life.
There was also an insect enclosure here which whilst interesting I would definately not reccommend to those people who are scared of insects as you come up close to some very creepy crawlies here.
