Go to the Blue Saloon with its vast panorama windows and experience the fascinating underwater world of both manatees and dolphins.

Good zoo in a nice setting in the woods, easy to get to on the tram to tiergarten. We loved the dolphin show, and the red pandas. A good amount of animals and they all seem well looked after.
