Summer - 09:00 AM to 07:00 PM,Winter - 09:00 AM to 05:00 PMFrankfurt Zoo was established in 1858 and is one of the oldest in Germany. The zoo is linked closely with the name of the famous animal expert and researcher Bernhard Grzimek. After the World War II, it was Dr. Grzimek who took care of rebuilding the wrecked buildings. After being appointed as the zoo's director, he also took care of purchasing animals, new buildings and modern enclosures. The special attractions today are the tigers, lions and leopards, the snakes and spiders, and the so-called day and night house which simulates the night-time-so that visitors can see what animals get up to after dark. The 11 hectare (27.18 acre) zoo now boasts over 600 different species and a total of 5,000 animals.
