Very varied species of animals and lots of play areas for the children.
Food in the restaurants is of moderate quality

“Lovely but maybe not in the rain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

The zoo was great and the botanical gardens were definitely interesting. However, we went on a day which wasn't particularly nice - a bit gloomy. Halfway through the zoo walk, it started raining and that sort of ended the fun. I'm not one for wandering around looking at animals in the rain!

I did manage to see the highlight of the seal feeding time which seemed to entertain both adults and children.

I think this would be much nicer in the summer and I'll definitely be scheduling a trip in the next few weeks.

“Always worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

It´s always nice to visti this zoo, the attractions are prepared nicely all the time, kept clear and fairly affordable entrance fees. Especailly in summer time you can enjoy the garden like layout, with relaxing areas.

“Nice but dont go during hot weather”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

The zoo overall was great. Good location, nice setup - you could easily spend a whole day there with your kids.

Unfortunately, we went on a very hot day and majority of the large animals were hiding so my kids didn´t get to see much. They should put some areas for the animals with some sun-shade so that tourists can still see them!

“Nice, kids do love it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We visited the Zoo in late afternoon and thus had some 3-4hrs to our disposal. It was enough to see most of the attractions as we didn't really bother with everything as we have been to zillion zoo's I think...Everything is laid our very nicely and even just sitting on the bench and enjoying the views feels relaxing after a busy day in the city. Not to expensive and plenty of parking available!
