Sitting next to the river Weser, Zoo am Meer is home mainly to Nordic and aquatic species. Opened in 1928 under the name Tiergrotten, the zoo has expanded greatly over the decades to accommodate a greater variety of animals. Some of the more popular animals here are the polar bears, the South American sea lions, seals, and Humboldt penguins. Look for a number of reptiles and land animals, such as the mountain lion and the chimpanzee. Check for animal feeding times on the zoo's website.

Many visitors not following the covid rules.
We had a lovely visit to the zoo. Fortunately the weather was good and quite warm so pleasant to wander around in. It is a good sized zoo for smaller children but enough to interest them. Size of carpark a bit of an issue causing difficulty in finding a space especially as we had a booked zoo time. Ended up 30 minutes late but still got in.
