Terrible zoo...there really is no place for zoos in city centres any more. Dirty, cramped and often smelly conditions for many of the animals. Disgraceful. Conservation plays no part here... and-impossible to park!

For what we are used to so far in Germany, this was a much better zoo. They have a lot of different animals that are great to take the family to and see.

Nice zoo, many animals but some of the animal houses are kind of stinky are dirty. Really enjoyed the one with the nocturnals though. Weather wasn't that good, I recommend going when it's sunny, because most of the animals stay inside if it's cold.

Definitely a must-go if you like animals and spacious places.Take some time to walk through the gardens. Don't miss the cute seals in the pool located by the small bridge; they are so friendly, and the little ones may pose for your camera, and mimic your waves :) The zoo is easily accesible by transportation.

We were not expecting how large this zoo really is! It has several exhibits; from reptiles to an aquarium, monkey house, petting zoo, big cats, bird house, giraffes, and many types of smaller exotic animals. Since we visited in February, some exhibits were not open, but still plenty to see. For 10 euro a person (adult), you could easily spend... More
