Very touching place where you can get to know beautiful animals - seals. Nice corner for children, cafe inside. Place is rather small, but very interesting. good cause. Must visit when in Groningen!

Worth a visit when you're around, not too big, but informative and fun for kids to see all the little seals.

A pleasant morning spent looking at seals - fine for children particularly and interesting enough for adults for half an hour or so. They could make it more interesting by explaining what the matter is with each seal and how they are treating them. Worth a visit if you are in the area but not worth a detour

We have visited the Zeehondencreche in Pieterburen in May on a very rainy day. The admission price is somewhat high for what you get, however this research centre does not get any grants or other sponserships from government and therefore has to rely on private sponsoring and income from the sales in their shop and restaurant. It's very informative to... More

We visited on a so-called VIP group arrangement of 16 Euros per person during a team awayday. We were received very well with outstanding coffee and outright delicious local cake in the pleasant cafe inside the sanctuary. Then we were given a good tour in English, including some behind the scenes views, by one of the professional staff of the... More

Great initiative and the seals are too cute for words! Go there with or without your little ones. We enjoyed it very much.

Took train from Groningen to Baflo and biked from there. Amazing ride,and beautiful to arrive in Pieterburen. The Zeehonds Crèche was really enjoyable with good displays and plenty of cuteness abounding. Over run with the wee humans, but obviously that is a large part of their audience. However it would be nice as an adult to have adult interest levels... More

It wasn't really worth it for what we had to pay (8 euros). Moreover, it is also a bit far from Groningen. It is a good activity to be combined with something else.

This is a really lovely place to visit with young children, we visited with 6, 5,4 and 3 year old children. It was a cold and blustery day when we went but that did not detract from the joy of the day as there is plenty to do indoors as well as outside. The video is worth seeing - i... More

The "Zeehondencreche Pieterburen" is a centre for aid to seals. The main purpose is to heal, help, and put back seals in nature. Surrounding this is a visitor's centre in which you can get information about the activities. Most of the information is in dutch. There are sheets with info in other languages. In the small movie theater they play... More
