Very good zoo!

Modern, clean and interesting. Good for rainy days also since it has several indoor cafes and playgrounds. Animals are very well taken care too. Pricy but worthy!!!

Modern zoo with very spacious environment for the animals. There is enough for every age and both outdoor and indoor facilities. This zoo is near to where I live and as such I often visit it. Be sure to ask for feeding times and additional specials of the day.

This zoo has plenty of space and a beautiful environment. There is plenty to see and plenty of parking. A lot of places to stop for coffee ... Just an overall relaxing zoo visit.

I visited the zoo briefly (I only had an hour to walk around) and it was a nice enough visit. There seemed to be lots of fun play areas for kids, so I could definitely see children enjoying a visit. If you happen to be in Rhenen without children and are just looking for a nice place to talk a... More

The bear and wolf area is really great, it's big and you can see them really good walking over the area. There are numerous great playgrounds for kids (even for older kids) The covered big playground at the end is our son's favourite. There are a lot of different animals.

Nice modern middle-size zoo. The animals are not suffering of claustrophoby. Has an average diversity and a nice seals show. Very good indoor children playgrounds. Aquarium is bad though. In general it worths a visit.

Was good. No elephants or lions when we were there, but it was nice and relaxed and the children enjoyed it.

One of the best zoo's in the Netherlands, in my opinion. Especially for those who like bears. I liked a lot their new project, the Bears Forest, where you walk in a big woods with a lot of bears (and few wolves) around you. Also the woody nature around the park is very beautiful.

The location self is in a beautiful woody area with big parking place. This zoo has various animals, big and small. It's famous with the "Beren Bos" (Bear's wood) where the most bears are rescued from the east european countries or the dancing bear of Turkey. A lot of playgrounds at different places for the children so they have enough... More

My wife and I stopped at this zoo on a Sunday as we traveled from Germany to the Netherlands. They have a decent range of animals to see, but what stood out to me was all the activity areas it had for kids, from slides and large jungle gyms to water rafts and a small kid sized zip line. Many... More
