Beautiful park with lots of gardens and different areas to sit and reflect or enjoy people watching. Best bit was feeding the carp - great fun! Cafe is super with terrace to enjoy the frozen yoghurt, cake, salad bar and beer.

Our kids love the Tierpark Lange Erlen, so we stop sometimes at the restaurant there. The service could be more efficient, but they are friendly. The food is okay. Nice terrace.
