The Aqua Zoo in Leeuwarden is a sweet and not too big zoo where you can spend a lovely afternoon with the whole family. The walk around the park is lovely. There are bird-shows and you can even walk through (and almost touch) the penguins! I love going to the Awua Zoo and added bonus; they're updating areas all the... More

very well liked not usually a zoo person but really enjoyed it, fairly easy to get to just take a bus and they drop you off with about 500 metres to walk

Via coupons from McDonalds we got 50% off, so we decided to visit this Aqua Zoo. Don't be mislead: there is more than aquariums! It is a reasonable size park with hunderds of animals like fish, sea lions, pinguins, storks, owls, kangaroos. It is a different set than normal zoo's. In my view a less exciting set. The good thing... More

Don't expect to enter a large zoo with gorilla's, lions and elephants. At first this parc shows a modest face, untill you lose the fast pace of life and simply enjoy a stroll, meeting up with animals here and there, mingling with lots of water based animals and fowl. Sometimes simple things of life or just a jolly walk and... More

The animals were all in very natural enclosures, and we were able to walk around at a very relaxed pace. Some of the species were new to us,and we enjoyed the very natural feel to the entire Zoo. Recommended for families and nature lovers.

Nice zoo, not so big but enough to see and do for at least half a day. Not so many large animals, but a lot of different smaller ones. Especially the area where you can walk in the same area as the apes do, is very nice.
