Absolutely wonderful. One of the best ZOOs I've ever been to. It's extremely animal and nature friendly, you can learn a lot from the info boards written in English as well (most of the time). Interesting animal species that can't be seen in many ZOOs....More

Lovely zoo with lots of interesting animals. Spacious and modern, always fun for a nice stroll. When the grill is running they have pretty decent burgers.
