“Just an "OK" Zoo”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

The zoo was nicely set up and it was clean. Many of the animals were not on display. I do recommend the boat ride since it allows you to see tons of large fish and interesting birds. The zoo isn't very big, so only a couple of hours are needed.

Thank Kerri c

“My favourite zoo in the world!”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

Despite the fact that I'm not a huge animal lover, I loved this zoo! It's a great mix of exotic animals and gardens and beautiful any time of the year. I most loved the giraffe and baby tigers.

My favourite part of the zoo is the little gondoletta boats, attached to an underwater track, which take you across the lake to the other side of the zoo.

The zoo's location directly across the street from the train station is incredibly convenient to visit.

Entrance rates are low and even lower for students!
