I like very much animals, all of them. I visited the place in a nice weather day, hoping to enjoy the animals, maybe to see something different. The place is huge, very well maintained, a lot of cages, however I almost haven't seen animals!!! I spent there 3-4 hours, hoping that a miracle will happen and the animals will appear,... More

The zoo takes very good care of their animals, even though a few of the buildings are a bit worn and dated. It's also very educational, although all information is... More

We spent about 4hrs there. 2 adults, 1 kid over 2yrs and 1 kid under 2yrs, 8euro/adult, 4/kid over 2. We were impressed by how many seals they had in one tank. The seals looked really happy too, playing with my daughter as she stood there watching them (they'd swim right past her, and swim directly at her). The bears... More

Plenty of wildlife to view and a nice petting zoo. Good representation of apes. Animals seemed well looked after and content apart from a pacing lion.
