I love zoos. Couldn't wait to see this one. It is a bit of a trek out there but the weather was blissful. But it only took two hours to see all there was to see. There was so much glare on the display glass at most of the exhibits that it was really hard to see if there were... More

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.

the zoo is so much more fun than just the baboon environment but i could have stayed all day watching them. hysterical! the paths around the parc wind through different environments the views through the glass walls are great for watching, above ground or below water. there is an enclosure for the giraffes, an open aviary with the flamingos, as...

Not to sure why this place has bad reviews as we had a really enjoyable afternoon. Although we don't have children you can tell that other kids are really enjoying themselves too. The zoo is large and we saw a range of animals - almost 3 hours walking around in total. The animals also look really healthy. The cost isn't... More

I wasn't quite sure what to make of the park upon entering as the tubular steel and chainlink does not exactly comply with your average zoo entrance, but some of the enclosures were pretty good to be fair. Although I was not wowed by anything, the animals looked healthy & content and I saw no obvious stereotyping which was good.... More

your going to see animals not fine wine and dine, dont complain about the small fee of entry, i would say its better than london zoo simply because the habitats seem more realistic and the animals seem to enjoy themselfs more. defiantly worth a visit and a walk around the local park

We visited the park with my 3 year old boy, on a Saturday afternoon. From Nation station, there is one bus ride that goes straight to the park. On weekends, if you can, buy the tickets online. There's a fee of 1 euro per ticket but it's worth it, to avoid the long queues. There's a big bunch of giraffes.... More

Really a superb place, still very new and all the animals are getting to know their environment. It's a bit expensive in the restaurant but well worth it. Paris need a real show case, compared with Jardin du Plante and Jardin de climataion.

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.
