This zoo was nicely laid out. It is a good size and took us about two and a half to three hours to see everything. I went with just my husband, but it was very family friendly. There are two restaurants, one on each side of the zoo, as well as a few drink stands here and there. I would... More

I loved this zoo, a huge zoo with plenty of animals, a good walk among trees and animals...the entrance fee is 10 euros, not that much. Around this zoo, plenty of good restaurants.

Cold Paulaner pint available! Nice place to go with kids. There´s a nice playground. Wide variety of species. Very clean, organized... More

I was really impressed by the organisation of this Zoo. You can see a lot of animals and insects in there natural environment. Some of the are not even separated by any fences so you can see them really close. It was the first time I saw penguins - they are solo sweet and fun! And the giraffe was really... More

Even though I am not a zoo visit person but I was glad for the opportunity to visit this place as present from a colleague. Is a small sized compared to other Zoos, however is a good sight view to see different animals.
