Nature awaits here and offers some nice walks in the woods on paths. Animals are held in wide areas, you even might buy some food for them, especially nice for kids. I really like it there though you need to be aware there will be always other people so no real privacy.

It's a nice place to go to on a sunny day. Especially around spring when there are baby animals. It is in the woods but still within city limits, so easy to reach even with public transportation. For smaller kids, there is a special trail, where they can experience the wood. Also, a very nice playground. If you're lucky, during... More

So it's not a fancy zoo, but the extensive paths through the woods are well placed, everything is well maintained and the small enclosures of animals are the exactly right size. Go there for a calming, nice Sunday afternoon.

Animals wander in wide open spaces. You can come close or watch from far away. Long walk from the entrance, some slight inclines.

I went where with my grandmother while I was staying in German. It was free. I visited this the same day I visited the Cologne Dom and Cologne zoo. I missed my stop on the subway in Cologne from the zoo to main station but I was fortunate because it pulled out of the city and became a regular train... More

The park is not very big, but you can still easily spend a few hours walking around there. There are a few trails going through the woods, with many interesting sights along them. There are 2 large enclosures with deer and wild boars, and you can feed them through the fence. They come very close to you, all you have... More

We live a few Km from here and enjoy taking the kids to watch the pigs and deer. There's a good kids playground and, when it's dry and warm, a little wooden house where you can get a Pizza and a beer. The main restaurant is closed right now though. The nature walk is nice but not exactly thrilling for... More
