One of the best laid out zoo's I have been to, animals all looked in tip top condition. The enclosures are large and nice to see a mixture of animals together. Spent 3.5 hours there including a snack. Would recommend for 21 Euro entrance fee...More

The Bear Pit play area was a huge hit with my teenage daughters. There are mazes and things to discover everywhere. There is something anarchic to it.The zoo is very good also.

One of the best zoos I've ever seen. Staff friendly, lots of activities for kids (not so much for toddlers though).

This zoo is ok. Have been in many other place where is is better, example Rotterdam. We made it at 2 hours it was not so much more to see there unless you want to hang around and have something to eat there.
