Huge complex of buildings makes this one of the most enjoyable museums you will ever visit. Plan to spend a great portion of the day there since there are so many exhibits and rooms to see.

We took out 10 month old for his first Zoo trip here. It was very clean and there was lots to see! My son loved the small petting area with the goats. We used a Hiking backpack, and left the stroller in the car. I would say the zoo is stroller friendly for the most part. But it was easier... More

I visited this zoo with my partner and we both absolutely loved it. It was more like a walk in a huge park with the extra of having different animals around. Especially recommend it when the weather is nice

The zoo is just a 5 minutes walk from the subway, which is very convenient. The area is huge and you can definitely spend half of the day here. There are a couple of cafes around and I'm sure you'll enjoy a cup of cappuccino with a view of pink flamingos:) Besides, the animals are very used to so many... More

The park is good approachable by bus or subway / underground and located at the southern city limits. The disposition into geographical zones, i.e. africa, asia, americas and europe is helping in gaining a well structured overview. The hugging areas where children experience animals' love by hugging them is great so are the playgrounds that allow children to live out... More

You can do a picnic or have lunch there they have a very good beer garden and a big... More

We went in a cloudy day as an alternative. The zoo has great cheap parking and is a big zoo. We had a nice day here but it was somewhat spoiled by all the building work and the empty exhibits. I am sure when finished in a year or so the new polar bear/ sea lion enclosure will be amazing,... More

Definitely one of the best zoos I have visited so far. Animals are healthy and properly looked after. There are food stalls and rest areas, and a play area for kids, as well as a petting zone. Definetly worth spending 3-4 hours there. Bring lunch with you, sit on a bench and enjoy it while looking at the animals.

Pack a lunch box and go on adventure. This ZOO is the absolute best I ever visited. It is spacious, the animals have great space and there is even an aquarium. We were blown away. It feels like walking in nature and then here and there are animals. Very nice. We were 4 of us, 2 adults and an 8... More
