AquaZoo Friesland is a good zoo to visit. Even if its cold and near water. Animals are near and almost toucheable. I recommend this. It is clean in the zoo and the restaurant. The food is of good quality. The zoo is large enough.

So relax d, located in a large park, wide open countryside. A nice idea, all water residents, the different animals. They all have enough room, which is important for animal parks. There were som pretty exotic ones, really, a must see. Great for kids!
