My family of 4 visited this zoo in early January. We all felt it was a great zoo. The animal housings we well done, and the animals looked well taken care of. We saw some animals we hadn't seen before, and we all loved watching the primates in their housing. It was a little cold walking around, but many of... More

This zoo is the best zoo I have ever been to, in the world! The animals were all looking quite happy and moving around and bars / small cages are really not an issue - as my pictures will show the animals are separated by fences and moats so you really get a great look at them. The zoo is... More

What a wonderful place to spend a couple of hours. Despite going in the winter time (they are also open on Christmas Day), the natural beauty was amazing. It is clear from the enclosures that the zoo is well maintained, and the animals really look well taken care of. They have a wide range of animals, which will keep both... More

This is a great zoo. Huge. great variety of animals, from giraffes to polar bears. We went first thing in the morning (9AM) and it was raining and cold, but it was still nice. There are kids parks and cafes (and restrooms) spread throughout, although not open when we were there in the early morning freezing rain, but I'm sure... More

visited the zoo in December so didn't know what to expect and as we arrived it started to rain! however our day was still brilliant and enjoyable and the weather didn't put us off. a lot of the animals had covers and we did not get too wet. when you first walk in there is a large section with goats...

Although I visited during winter, the zoo still had plenty to offer. There were lots of animals outside, even the african ones. The aquarium is a must-see

big zoo area with lots of animals and very well organized. Unfortunately, not all the texts contains an english language translation. For those, whose do not know german language will miss some information. It worth around three hours visit to see everything or more if going with kids.

very good zoo and very large. It has everything from sharks to snakes and everything in between. Not far from the city centre and has a nice restaurant too. I've been to many famous zoos such as Central Park zoo in NYC but this place is awesome and very good value for money.

Fantastic day out for my birthday in October. Really loved the place. Large natural enclosures with plenty of enrichment for the animals. Sadly lots of animals either hibernating or on holiday whilst their enclosures are upgraded. Will have to return next year to see the new elephant enclosure. However this did not spoil my visit as still plenty to see... More
