Enjoy animals - promoting conservation

Crocodiles, gorillas, lions and rhinos: you don`t have to travel to Africa to see these fascinating animals. A trip to Frankfurt Zoo is just as good.

Frankfurt Zoo is a green oasis in the middle of the thriving Main metropolis and offers not only a green recreation area on your doorstep. Here you can discover more than 4,500 animals in over 450 species.

You will find proud African animals next to feisty seals and majestic tigers, right around the corner from cheeky otters. In the Grzimek House day becomes night as your immerse yourself into the secretive animal world of Madagascar. Fishes, sea horses, penguins, snakes and crocodiles all mill around in the Exotarium (aquarium and reptile house). In the Borgori Forest ape house you can encounter our hominid "relatives" in a genuine jungle atmosphere.

Our animals do well in surroundings as natural as possible, with many places to hide and live in species-specific social groups just like they do in the wild.

Opening times

We are open every day of the year from 9.00 am to 
7.00 pm (summer) or to 5.00 pm (winter).


The animal houses close half an hour before the zoo's closing time.

Ticket sales cease half an hour prior to closing time.
