We visited the zoo and the castle week ago. The area is huge, all animals have great space, which is a really good thing. Expect lots of walking (steep slopes) which can be tiring, especially in hot weather. The entry is valid for the zoo,...More

We came here from America because my family ancestors were Herbersteins so we had to see this amazing castle. The tour was very informative and we were blown away at how beautiful the castle and the surrounding gardens were. It is a very small, quaint...More

Surprisingly well stocked zoo in the middle of nowhere. Can be expensive to enter so make sure you get a "Genusscard". Had food, ice cream and beverages inside. Well worth a visit if you stay in the area.

I went there with my husband and my five-year-old daughter. There is a huge variety of animals that are kept well and free in their environment. The family ticket is worthy the visit, as it is well maintained and available even to disabled people. Really...More

This park is very large and you should expect to cover a large area by walking, and not only flat path ways, they are several steep tracks and uneven paths. So great exercise as well as a tiring, but fun day!

It's a huge zoo with a nice park, with a castle to visit too (a small excursion there possible, but not with a pram - too many stairs, damn you no name middle age architect!!), you can go for a bit hiking behind the castle...More
