The Cologne Zoological Garden features over 7,000 animals of more than 700 species on more than 20 hectares
Colognes zoo is especially known for its big elephant house and always a hit with kids. The day can only get better if you take a trip to Rheinpark on the other side of the Rhine with the cable car that starts at the zoo. From there you'll have an amazing view over Cologne.
Ein schönes Ausflugsziel bei schönem Wetter. Ich empfehle kleine Wasserflaschen und Snacks. Man kann gut einen ganzenTag im Zoo verbringen. Kinder liegen bei 11€ bis 12 Jahre (Schülerausweis erforderlich) Studenten 14,90 € und Erwachsene ca. 21 €

“Since its establishment in 1957 as the first European cable car to cross a river - in this case, the Rhine - the Cologne cable car has carried millions of passengers. The views are, of course, the big draw, particularly those of the Old Town and Cologne Cathedral. For more great views, a visit to Cologne Telecommunications Tower is worthwhile. Located northwest of Cologne's Old Town, Colonius, as it's known locally, is 243 meters high with a superb viewing platform and a revolving restaurant. KölnTriangle, a striking contemporary building on Ottoplatz, also has a panoramic viewing platform.”
“My most famous park in cologne. With a very nice cafe from April to October.”
