There is no more pleasant a way to spend a few hours than visiting this zoo, You can even spend half a day here; even a day. The zoo, once known as the Parc Zoologique de Vincennes - Vincennes Zoological Zoo - is *new* in that the previous zoo on the same site in the district of Vincennes on the... More

Nice, compact but very well organized zoo. Far from the center, expensive but very nice zoo that is worth visiting in Paris. Especially visit with the small kids - they will like and enjoy it!

I have to wonder if some of the other reviewers went to the same "new: zoo. I took the 56 bus from the Bastille area and it left me right at the zoo's main gate. 22 euros entrance - less than 2 burgers or 3 or 4 cokes. I loved the place and the layout.17 giraffes - how many do... More

I recommend the car elsewhere because there are few places in the area. What a surprise to have a zoo on the outskirts of Paris! The course is nice and different angles to see the animals are very pleasant. Some animals hide because there are many more quiet places for them but obviously as in all new "zoo" and we... More

Park is very small. Over half of the animals we could not see. No English information, so we could not read to the children about the animals.

Had a bit of a problem finding it - guidebook referred to zoo in same sentence as Chateau de Vincennes so we had a long walk trying to find it without any useful maps or guides! Use metro Porte Doree. It is expensive compared to some attractions (84EUR for family of 5) but if you get there early enough you... More

Normally visiting a zoo is a nice experience (with or without kids) and a way to get away from the crowds. This last reason is still valid in the Paris Zoo but the exhibits are rather dull, very few animals and a presention that recalls the 19th century. Compared to Prague, Amsterdam, London or San Diego this zoo is not... More

During off peak times the park is a nice quiet escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Enjoyed watching the giraffes eat and the sea lions were cute.

Staying in Bercy / Nation

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
