This was an entirely unexpected bonus for me in Montpellier. This small zoo is a gem, and while it doesn’t have a vast collection, what it does have makes for an enjoyable outing. Recommended!

I have visited it few times. Its a very nice place for kids and few adults who love animals.The restaurant is cool. They serve verygood Fish recipies like Bar. Go for it on a sunny day.

Montpellier's main zoo is free! Easy to get there by tram and then bus. You can get good views of rhinos, giraffes, bears and Iberia wolves in particular. Animal enclosures are supplemented by wooden statues of the animals for kids to climb on. It's a...More
