The zoo is quite impressive and is nicely seperated according to the continents. The polar bear does not look that happy though

This zoo is quite boring. You can find the same species and animals in almost every zoo in the world. Don't go.

Hi, It is 1 hr train to Rotterdam. The station is in the center, you can take a taxi and go to the zoo, it is not very far. Or try metro and/or bus. They are right in front on the station. Surely doable in 1 day
